The privilege of a lifetime is becoming who you truly are.
- Carl Jung
The human experience is rich and complex. I believe treatment must reflect this in order for people to meet their goals.
While many people think of treatment with a psychiatrist as being primarily medication focused, I have found that medications often serve as an adjunct in treatment, but are rarely the primary solution.
The approach I take with my patients is the same as I would want for my own family members: a balanced and collaborative one, including talk therapy, optimizing nutrition and sleep and prescribing physical activity, mindfulness practices and medications as indicated. I find this comprehensive approach helps to reduce the need for medications while enhancing wellness.
