Edward Chastka, Psychiatrist  in Reading
“I am a traditionally trained psychiatrist practicing for over 20 years. During this time I became disappointed with modern psychiatry's reliance on the use of medications. I do recognize their usefulness for stabilizing overwhelming symptoms, but I would much rather help patients face symptoms than to medicate them. To do this I use a combination of mind and body techniques, tailored to each patient's individual character and designed to help them overcome symptoms such as anxiety, depression, boredom and frustration.
