Our Practice Philosophy

We seek to understand each patient’s individual history, to diagnose accurately, and to formulate appropriate treatment plans.

We consider each patient’s unique biological, psychological, neurological, developmental, and social history. We recognize that the best way to help and to serve each patient is to appreciate each one as an individual with both worthy strengths and relative weaknesses.
We serve to provide comprehensive treatment and to collaborate with one another, as well as with primary care providers, specialists, school teacher and administrators, family members, adjunct clinicians, and advocates. At the same time, we never forget that maintaining privacy is essential and paramount.
We work as highly trained and experienced psychiatric clinicians. Together, we keep up with the state of the art of psychiatric evaluation and treatment, including psychotherapeutic modalities and psychiatric medication management. We treat people – not merely symptoms and disorders.
We believe we need to remain humble, as we seek to help each patient and every family to find answers for their personal struggles, while we offer continued encouragement, optimism, and professionalism.
