Psychiatrists in Pennsylvania (PA)

Lori Goldstein, Psychiatrist  in Philadelphia
“People often decide to see a psychiatrist because they are experiencing psychological or interpersonal pain. Because of this pain, they are unable to feel a sense of well-being or feel connected to themselves or others. Often, emotional pain results from unknown or unrecognized beliefs, conflicts, and patterns. When people are unaware of their feelings, thoughts, and actions, they may stay stuck in maladaptive ways of thinking and relating. Psychotherapy aims to help people develop a deeper awareness of themselves in order to relieve symptoms, enhance well-being, and develop a healthier relationship with the self and others.

Edward Chastka, Psychiatrist  in Wyomissing
“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.

Franklin Maleson, Psychiatrist  in Philadelphia
“I regard empathy, responsiveness, and respect for the patient as core therapeutic values. While I tailor treatment to the individual, as a psychoanalyst I place special importance on gaining insight about unconscious contributors to current difficulties. I also appreciate the importance of clarifying and resolving here-and-now problems. When appropriate I prescribe medications or work short-term. My style is collaborative rather than authoritarian. For many years I have taught psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to trainees in these fields. I also teach professional ethics. I have published in the major journals in my field and am a training and supervising psychoanalyst.

Lawrence D. Blum, Psychiatrist  in Philadelphia
“If you had a problem with your heart, you'd consult a cardiologist. For problems with your emotional heart, you should also consult an expert: a psychoanalyst, a mental health professional with extra training to help people understand what their problems are really about, especially problems that don't respond to simple solutions and advice. For the most effective treatment, kindness and understanding are essential, and so is extensive knowledge of human psychology, culture, and biology. Confidentiality and respect for personal experience, autonomy, and potential for change and growth are equally important.

Alexander Kanevsky, Psychiatrist  in Jamison
“Dr. Kanevsky, MD - invites you to experience a new level of health and vitality where modern science & ancient healing arts merge to help restore health and prolong life. There is no client that I fear in treating or helping in any way. The approaches that others take to everyday issues like depression and anxiety are looked upon as barriers that we overcome together. Some people say I am unusual because I actually do counseling with my patients and not just medication management.

“Might it be to your advantage to see a psychiatrist who can attend to both the psychological and biological dimensions of your difficulties?

“My areas of expertise in Adult Psychiatry include: anxiety disorders (obsessive-compulsive, PTSD, dissociative disorders); depression (including atypical depression and treatment resistant subtypes); bipolar disorders; pain management and other medico-psychiatric conditions; addictions and substance abuse; problems of the elderly. By practicing for over 30 years I came to realize that every individual is able to change his or her way of thinking and feeling, provided the client is willing to do so.

Howard Scott Baker, Psychiatrist  in Wynnewood
“I'm a general psychiatrist providing individual, couples, and family psychotherapy. I also prescribe medication. I begin by trying to understand you as a person, and I'm convinced that you must feel understood. Problems most people face are the result of psychological, interpersonal and biological factors. These usually interact. After initial meetings, we decide how to proceed: perhaps psychotherapy, and we may or may not decide to use medication. Many of my patients have AD/HD, but I treat other problems. I actively pursue continuing education and teach medical students and psychiatry residents at the University of Pennsylvania.

“Adjustments can often be challenging. Whether it may be a shift in career, end to a relationship, or change in phase of life, these transitions can frequently disrupt our usual patterns of thinking and behavior.

Susan P Marcel, Psychiatrist  in Philadelphia
“I like to think I am best suited for treating individuals who are very sensitive and want more out of their lives, those who are seeking a deeper, richer life than where they find themselves currently. Identifying and changing those things that block emotional satisfaction is something patients and I work together on. Doing this allows my patients to make better emotional contact with themselves, with their loved ones and their life's work. I like to help patients identify what is healthy and what is unhealthy in their emotional and physical lives.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Pennsylvania (PA) is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.
