Psychiatrist in Washington, D. C.
PSYCHOTHERAPY AND FORENSIC PSYCHIATRY
|I am a psychiatrist who still practices psychotherapy in addition to utilizing medication in my practice. |
You, the patient, come first. I listen carefully to what you say, get a background history, learn your treatment goals and work with you to craft the best possible psychiatric treatment plan based on what you need. I do not participate in any insurance plans because I want to be able to work with you, the patient, without interference, and to be able to use my clinical judgment to offer what is in your best interest, not that of the insurance company.
I am located just north of downtown Washington, D. C., convenient for Washington and the Virginia and Maryland suburbs.
The aim of psychiatry and psychotherapy is to help you gain insight into yourself, find what may be blocking you in your life, and translate that insight into action.
By engaging in a true dialog, we can obtain results. I combine state-of-the-art medication therapy with compassionate psychotherapy for symptom relief, practical problem solving and psychological insight into feelings and behaviors.

I was pleased to read this commentary on advantages of psychotherapy from the New York Times:
I was shocked and saddened to see the New York Times profile of a psychiatrist who has abandoned psychotherapy. Talk therapy is a serious process with a long history of observations and research. Recent research confirms how powerful and useful proper talk therapy really is.
