What does a first session with you look like?

The first session with me, which typically lasts an hour at a minimum, is an information gathering session and less of a 2-way conversation. During the session, I gather health/medical information, past psychiatric and behavior health treatment, relevant family and social history, begin the evaluation and diagnostic process of your past and current symptoms that currently bring you in for treatment, provide psychoeducation regarding your diagnoses, discussed your treatment goals, and I'll present psychiatric and psychopharmacologic treatment options that you feel comfortable with and are based in scientific evidence. This is also a session where you and I begin to get to know each other, developing comfort and rapport. Beginning to develop a trusted treatment alliance is important during this session. In rare occasions, the next session may be needed to gather further information in order to support the activities and goals of our first session. However, in most subsequent sessions the focus is on response and tolerability of treatment and alterations to treatment if necessary. Throughout our work together, rapport, comfort, openness, and trust continues to evolve.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Treatment methods I employ are the classic psychiatric interview, collaborative treatment plan development, and evidence-based medicine interventions. I also typically gather relevant information from psychotherapists, primary care providers, and/or medical specialists when needed. My treatment methods range and involve to meet treatment goals and ensure that my work with him is geared to maximize their potentials. To this end, my approach can be comforting, supportive, and patient-driven to directive and therapeutically confrontational if needed to help propel the patient to a higher level of functioning.
