What does a first session with you look like?

During your initial appointment, we will perform a comprehensive biopsychosocial psychiatric evaluation to assess your life currently and historically including an assessment of relevant family histories. Following the assessment, a DSM V diagnosis will be made from the information gathered. You will be educated on your diagnoses, causes, treatment methods available as well as prognosis. Subsequently, we will create a treatment plan based on a combination of your symptoms, diagnosis, treatment guidelines specific to your issues, your needs, and preferences. Follow-up appointments or medication management visits will address your progress and overall health. Your treatment plan will be modified as needed based on your symptom progression and your preferences.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize strong evidence-based treatment methods that are streamlined to fit your individual needs and preferences. For medications, my philosophy is to start at low and slowly titrate until you get the desired result. This method has proven to be very helpful in preventing and early identification of side effects, especially in medication naive patients
