In my practice, I prescribe medications to help alleviate your suffering when appropriate and safe. These can often work effectively. However, I never solely rely on psychiatric medications as a complete “fix.” I am always mindful of other treatment modalities, such as brief therapy, nutrition modification, sleep hygiene, and physical fitness, each of which, research shows, can alleviate symptoms. If your therapy needs are greater than what I can/do provide, I am able to provide a referral to an appropriate therapist.
Intake appointments last approximately 60 minutes. During the first appointment, I will spend some time getting to know you. There is a lot of information to gather during this initial session, so it is important that you arrive on time. Follow up appointments vary in length, depending on your individual needs. They range from 25 to 55 minutes in length.
The limitations of availability does not allow us to provide immediate crisis intervention. In case of an emergency, call 911 or go to your closest Emergency Room for immediate help.
Referrals can be provided for a higher level of care as needed such as: inpatient services, partial hospitalization day programs, or clinics if you require more intensive services to help you cope with any crisis you might be dealing with.
In case of a crisis, please call the crisis resource line at 211 or the 24 hour crisis line at (206) 461-3222.
