Adult and Young Adult Psychiatry Services

I work individually with Young Adults and Adults up to age 65. I am Board Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology to provide psychotherapy and medication for a wide variety of emotional, behavioral, and psychological difficulties. Problems such as Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Social Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, PTSD, and Relationship and Work Stress are all common reasons for seeking help from a psychiatrist.

I understand that it is not always easy to seek help for these types of problems and by the time someone calls for help they have often been in pain and suffering alone for some period of time. Alternatively a number of different professionals may have already been consulted such as your general medical doctor, psychologist or another therapist , and perhaps other psychiatrists as well. Occasionally it is other family members or employers who are distressed by the patient's difficulty and pressure them to get treatment.

The crucial first step in each instance, no mater how you have come to see me, is a careful assessment of your situation so I can understand with you your concerns and what has happened. This is the initial task in our work together. Appointments will be arranged so that you have adequate time to tell me of your concerns and so I have adequate time to get any additional information I need to understand your situation. That work is the basis on which I can then recommend a plan aimed at helping you feel better. Not infrequently feeling better starts with the first visit as being alone with a problem has intensified the pain. This however, is not always the case.

Various forms of psychotherapy (often used in combination for maximum benefit) as well as medication (when indicated) may be recommended to you for your treatment. These interventions can be aimed at Depression and other mood disorders; Anxiety such as Panic Attacks, Social Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, or PTSD; Sometimes distress can take the form of hearing voices or seeing things and there are treatments available for people suffering those symptoms too. Help in the face of loss (deaths, divorce, serious medical illness, broken relationships) is also available.

Assistance is also available to people who feel held back in their career by anxiety, self doubt, or difficulties sorting out how to interact with supervisors, supervisees, or co-workers. Developing an understanding of recognized and unrecognized fears and assumptions that affect managerial abilities may help to develop more effective skills in this arena.
