This new practice opened in November 2016. I am open to working with other professionals to coordinate care to the maximum. Too many patients slip through the cracks when doctors don’t cooperate. Many patients get their first psychiatric drugs through primary care physicians who may not be trained in the drug interactions or the alternative non-drug solutions to common complaints.

I also am considered “The doctor’s doctor” and “The therapist’s therapst” and work well with people in the medical and mental health field. Of course, I never advise someone to treat themselves, even if they are experienced professionals.

I give free hugs liberally. Many told me I am the nicest doctor they ever met.

Treatments

Traditional allopathic and alternative holistic pharmacology with a special interest in transitioning from pharmaceutical to natural treatments for those who are not tolerating prescription drugs very well or are dissatisfied with the results they are getting from traditional treatment. I am especially interested in PTSD and TBI, as well as other neuropsychiatric complaints. I also am a proponent of nutritional and dietary regimens to improve a wide range of conditions that often present as psychiatric.

Prescribe Psychiatric Drugs
Yes -- I won't change a patient's drug plan unless they are willing, and I use a slow-taper to wean the patient off of drugs comfortably to avoid withdrawal symptoms.
Help take patients off of psychiatric drugs
Yes -- this is a special interest of mine and I have many years experience in this field
Comments about taking patients off of psychiatric drugs

It is never advised to stop cold-turkey. Many prescription drugs have adverse effects from minor discomfort to even seizures and death. Only change drugs or eliminate drugs under a doctor’s care. Ask about a cross-taper, which decreases the dosage of one drug while introducing and increasing the dosage of an alternative treatment. Done correctly, the transition should be painless and easy.

Other Notes

I believe anyone receiving drug therapy (including alternative natural treatments) should have a psychotherapist to deal with the issues requiring drug treatment. I practice a few dynamic short-term treatments like Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), but will readily refer a patient to a suitable therapist that I believe can be of most help — whether it is Marital and Family Therapy, psychological testing, hypnotherapy, massage therapy and other fields.
