I offer individualized care, tailored to the patient and not to a schedule of treatments determined by HMO's or insurance companies. Alternative methods are not promoted nor are they opposed. The goal is to find a proper mix of treatments which involves a partnering style of therapeutic relationship between patient and doctor/therapist.
I have used these treatment methods to successfully improve my patients lives: Dynamic Psychotherapy, Psychopharmacology(medication therapy) including Medication Consultation, Stress Management, Biofeedback, Life Partner Communications Skills Training (couples therapy), Psychoanalysis, Virtual Reality Immersion phobia Therapy.
Here is a list of some of the problems I have had long experience with:Relationship Problems,Mood Instability, Self Doubt and/or Inner Conflict, Medical Conditions Aggravated by Stress such as Headache, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Hypertension, Skin Conditions, Chronic Pain, Irregular Heart Beat (Benign Arrythmia), Anxiety and Phobias, Depression, and adult ADD/ADHD.
