My Ideal Client

I've worked with youth and families experiencing a wide variety of difficulties. The key to success in my opinion requires a strong therapeutic connection, commitment to change things for the better, and skillful treatment. Progress of any kind is not usually a smooth, upward curve; instead it often relies on handling both the ups and downs of emotional growth, which can be stressful even when mood, anxiety, etc. improves. Change is work worth doing.

My Background and Approach

Over the last 20+ years, I've overseen intensive psychiatric programs, as well as providing assessment and medication management within school-based, office and tele-psychiatric settings. I coordinate with therapists, schools, PCPs and others to deliver quality psychiatric care for youth experiencing a wide variety of diagnostic and behavioral issues. Since becoming a psychiatric nurse in 1979, I've seen the landscape change dramatically. Although most problems I encounter nowadays are basically not new, changing social dynamics such as electronic media, often complicate the picture. That's why I emphasize building skills and psychotherapy whenever medication is indicated. I see the value of listening and it's very important to me that clients feel heard. Our work together may include difficult discussions or topics although sometimes humor and a light touch will best set the stage for success.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Through the years I've worked with many different kinds of issues and I've seen so many suffering with keen emotional distress far too long before seeking treatment, but it's understandable; psychiatric treatment is a huge step. It can often be a gamechanger but the same time, most parents wisely sense it can potentially be unhelpful... even problematic. I think the clients I serve mostly are ready to make changes well before it feels right. Medication doesn't cure mental health conditions, but instead treats symptoms-- lasting change relies on improving skills and increasing personal capacities in a variety of areas. There are evidence-based models which work, and medication can often be a big help toward gaining and solidify the abilities necessary to be happy and successful in an ever-changing world around us.
