The initial assessment is a 60-90 minute detailed evaluation, where I will focus on obtaining an accurate psychiatric history and evaluating treatment needs. This evaluation will help formulate a customized treatment plan to fit your needs. I may or may not recommend medications as part of treatment, based on the diagnosis and symptoms.
I utilize psychodynamic psychotherapy as a foundation and have had comprehensive supervision during and after my residency training. I am a member of American Psychoanalytic Association. I also supervise therapy cases for psychiatry resident physicians in training. I practice brief psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Couples Therapy. Psychotherapy is offered once or twice weekly, and may be an additional component in an individual’s treatment plan.
