What is your style/approach to therapy?

Using technology-based therapeutic tools such as tele-health in behavioral health services to see patients via telehealth on an expanded schedule (weekends evenings and holidays by request). Use of comprehensive psychiatric evaluation questionnaire to diagnose and develop treatment plans Use of standardized clinical rating scales to establish individual baseline and to monitor progress or decompensation over time Screening tests to aid in making a diagnosis and ruling out other disorders

What does a first session with you look like?

The initial visit consists of completing a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, which identifies risk factors that might affect a patient's mental health. Diagnoses of mental illness are made based on assessment, and then a determination of the most effective plan of care for the individual is made utilizing psychotherapy modalities and psychopharmacology. The treatment plan collaborates with other professionals to set a regimen of therapy and prescription medication to improve the person's mental health. Also, as I evaluate progress, I will continue to provide support and education to my patient and their family.
