I believe that healing comes in many forms. I am first trained as a psychiatrist and physician. Overall I have found medications can be, but are not always a first line choice for the individual. I meet the person where they are, and do my best to offer what they need, whether that be medication, short or long-term psychotherapy, hypnosis, relaxation training, or a combination that fits the person. I follow evidence-based practice, but also recognize the limitations of current medical research in its generalizability to the individual.
