My clinical work consists of diagnostic assessments, psychopharmacology consultations, and psychiatric treatment of children, adolescents, and adults. I provide both psychotherapy and medication management. My clinical orientation is relatively practical. I listen to my patients and talk to them. I’ve found that generating an atmosphere of mutual respect and mutual trust is more important than any specific interventional technique. I utilize an approach based on my understanding of developmental theory with elements of behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, and interpersonal therapeutic techniques. If I believe that a patient can best benefit from a manualized, evidence-based intervention such as CBT or IPT, I make referrals to other mental health professionals who can rigorously conduct this type of treatment.
