Philosophy of care
"Psychiatric conditions have a biological basis making them complex. Factor in any psychosocial stressors a person may be experiencing, as well as other medical issues, and that complexity increases. My goal is to improve the quality of each patient’s life by first understanding their situation and then working together to find the best treatment plan. I believe that medications are only one component of a treatment plan, and although important – even critical – they should be minimized as much as possible."
