Practice Information

I strive to provide my patients with the highest quality psychiatric assessment and treatment. While relying on the best evidence-based treatments wherever possible, I recognize the importance of tailoring treatment to the needs and preferences to each of my patients.

I offer psychotherapy, medication management, and clinical consultation. I also offer legal services as an expert in the field of psychiatry. In my office, I see children, adolescents and adults for a wide variety of reasons.

When we first make contact I will try to get a sense of your needs, and the degree of urgency. If it is clear to me that I will not be the best person to help you, I may let you know that and suggest alternate resources. Otherwise, we will schedule an initial meeting. Often I am able to see new patients within one week, depending on your own flexibility.

Prior to our initial meeting I will ask you to complete intake paperwork including contact information, medical history, treatment agreement, etc. If there are individuals you wish me to be in touch with about your treatment, such as another therapist, primary care doctor, or family member, I’ll ask you to fill out a Release of Information form as well.

An initial consultation last 60-90 minutes. This meeting serves several purposes: it gives you a chance to describe what has led you to seek my assistance; it gives me an opportunity to learn about your background, lifestyle, and relationships; and perhaps most importantly, it gives both of us the opportunity to assess whether we will be a “good fit”.

Depending on the situation and your level of comfort, I will often suggest one or more additional 45-minute meetings to follow closely behind the initial consultation. These give us a chance to understand more about the context of your difficulties, as well as further evaluate our ability to work together.

After this, most patients continue seeing me in one of two broad capacities: either as therapy patients (often with concurrent medication management), or for medication management alone (either seeing a different person for psychotherapy, or without therapy at all.) Patients seeing me for therapy usually come for 45-minute meetings at least twice a month, while medication-only patients generally come for 20-30 minute meetings on a less frequent basis. The actual schedule of our meetings, however, remains highly flexible depending on your preferences and needs at any given time.
