The following issues are treated beginning by talking about the emotional or traumatic experiences with Talk Therapy (see Types of Therapy for more details). Medications are applied if needed. If you have a therapist, I am glad to just manage medications. Meditation techniques are practiced to help the therapeutic and the recovery process (see Mindfulness and Meditation for details).
My philosophy regarding medications is to make the recovery process more efficient. I am mindful how long it is needed so that it helps recovery, avoids the side effects and does not become habit forming. Patients are welcome to inquire about their medication regimens and come in for a second opinion if needed.
I am mindful that these conditions sometimes do not occur on their own. Co-occurring disorders and complex cases are treated and clarified.
