Introduction

I am a board-certified psychiatrist and have been working with patients for over twenty years to address their emotional difficulties. Unfortunately, many of us at one time or another, experience anxiety, depression, problems with intimacy, and self-esteem. I offer individualized treatment through sensitive, personal interaction and insight, with a strong intellectual grounding and clinical expertise. In some cases, I employ a psychoanalytical approach. A psychodynamic approach, helps clients uncover unconscious, hidden factors that create unhappiness, crippling and repetitive maladaptive patterns of relating and thinking. This method requires a specialized way of listening to the patient that allows the patient to re-experience repetitive ways of relating within the session and with the doctor. In other cases a less intensive, more targeted approach is enough. In this case, clients use psychological strategies to deal with work-related stress and overcome obstacles, enabling more effective communication, negotiation, and workplace relationship management.
