Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist
I know it can be very difficult to find yourself struggling with your emotions which in turn create disharmony, anxiety, inhibition or unhappiness. These difficulties can feel overwhelming and affect every aspect of your life from your relationships with family or friends to your work and daily activities or just your overall sense of satisfaction. Sometimes it is difficult to understand why we react the way we do and how to achieve a change in a deep and long-lasting way.
There are many different reasons to seek help, some people come wanting to learn more about themselves, looking to understand situations or recurrent problems in their lives, or may just feel like something is troubling them. For some people they look into seeking help because they feel drained after having tried different unsuccessful ways to overcome their difficulties with poor or only temporary results. It can feel very frustrating to feel that you are dealing with problems on your own.
Parents sometimes seek help for their children or adolescents when they see them struggling during their development with their emotions, behavior, relationships, and overall capacity to grow and enjoy themselves, family, school or friends.
Upon initial evaluation my goal is to understand the process that has led to the current challenges in the person’s life and then focus our treatment goals into helping you understand how these difficulties came about paving the way towards the emotional freedom necessary to make substantive lasting changes. The path to recovery and well-being is as unique as each individual and that is why we will come to a decision together as to which path might suit you best.
I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist. I am Board Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I provide different treatment modalities including psychoanalysis, psychodynamic psychotherapy alone or in combination with medications when needed. Depending on each case, medication may be an important part of the treatment, sometimes not enough and at times not needed at all.
