My Approach to Helping
As a clinical psychologist, I specialize in the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders. In addition to a psychological evaluation, clinical interview, and possibly additional assessments, I evaluate whether a person has symptoms of a mood disorder such as Major Depression, Dysthymia, or Bipolar Disorder, or of an anxiety disorder such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder or Social Phobia. I also have training and expertise in the treatment of general behavioral medicine issues including obesity and weight loss. Treatment focuses on symptom relief and on increasing well-being. I utilize positive psychology exercises to identify and maximize one's personal strengths.
