How does collaboration with other providers play into your work?

Collaboration with other providers is essential in my work. Not only is it important to discuss medical history, treatment history, and medications with your current providers, but case consultation is also critical. As a group practice owner, I interface with nearly two dozen highly skilled therapists weekly. I think matching you with a provider who fits you best based on personality, style, specialty areas, and availability is essential in the therapeutic process. I am happy to work alongside you as we find the best fit for you and your treatment goals.

What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

One of the most significant barriers for people seeking care is stigma. While American culture has come a long way regarding destigmatizing mental health, many overt and covert stigmas remain. Sometimes the people closest to us- friends and family- perpetuate these stigmas or tell us what we "should" or "shouldn't" be doing. This is not helpful for folks who are already having a hard time reaching out for help. As a result, stigma continues to pose a large barrier for those seeking mental health care.
