Clinical Focus

Approach to Diagnosis

Psychiatric diagnoses have their limitations, and I do not attempt to reduce a whole person to one or two labels. I do, however, use evidence-based interview techniques and detailed questionnaires to identify specific treatable conditions. This helps us to find the most effective treatment(s) for you.
