Message to clients

My therapeutic approach is to combine best clinical practices in psychotherapy and psychopharmacology as informed by contemporary neuroscience. Rather than focusing on diagnosis and disease, I am oriented toward maximizing health and wellness. I try to help a person define and fulfill his or her potential in work and relationships, while achieving realistic goals and higher aims
