Philosophy

Every person is unique. I’m less concerned about diagnosis than about identifying what is out of balance physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually.
    
Relationship is essential to healing and is the foundation of psychotherapy. When  brain chemicals become disrupted due to dysfunctional relationships, unhealthy lifestyles, or genetic susceptibility, the correct medication can provide a boost up towards living life more fully and creatively.
