Treatment Approach/Philosophy: Mental health sometimes requires professional psychiatric support. I have also found that a practical and holistic approach is critical. Allied with the usual medical interventions is preventive self-care which draws on personal strengths and resources. This "whole person" orientation should, of course, include psychotherapy and psychiatric medication, when necessary, but also stress management, exercise prescription and meditation techniques. My professional background in psychotherapy, medication management, excercise presciption and meditation presents a unique suite of skills that makes possible whole person mental health care and counseling. This holistic approach allows each person to realize the fullness of life.
