Psychiatrists 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."

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

"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. My professional experience has found that having an interested, empathetic, and active listener as a psychotherapist can be extremely beneficial in assisting not only with these difficult times, but also with unforeseen situations bound to occur in the future."

"If you are looking for a therapist, I assume it's because you are unhappy with some part of yourself: your life, your career, or your relationships. The unhappiness can take many forms. You may feel depressed, or scared, or worried, or guilty,or angry, or ashamed. My forte is psychodynamic psychotherapy, which assumes that beneath the feelings that you are aware of, there is a network of other conflicting feelings operating out of your control. In dynamic psychotherapy, our goal will be to help you understand those deeper feelings, see how they are interfering with your well-being, and to help you change them."

"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."

"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."

"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."

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.
