Answers to Some Common Questions
WHAT ARE YOUR AREAS OF SPECIALTY?
I specialize in the treatment of trauma, dissociative disorders, PTSD and self-injury. I also have extensive experience and knowledge in working with people who have bipolar disorder, mood disorders, psychosis, depression and anxiety.
Talk with me about your specific concerns and we can see if I can help you or offer you a referral to someone who is better suited for your needs.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED TO SEE A THERAPIST?
Chances are if you're reading this you have some idea that seeing a therapist might be a good idea. Sometimes seeing a therapist is helpful simply to get an objective opinion. Sometimes a therapist can help you clarify issues so you can solve problems on your own. You and I will work together to set the goals of therapy.
DO YOU PRESCRIBE MEDICATION?
I do not prescribe any type of medications. Generally psychiatrists or your PHP will prescribe psychiatric medications if you need these. With your permission, I'm happy to collaborate with your other providers.
