My Approach to Helping
I know how much struggling with a mental disorder can affect your life and the lives of those you love. You've probably been feeling discouraged and scared because you've not been able to find the help you need. And, maybe you're a Christian who has been told the lie that "Christians don't have mental disorders," which has begun to make you feel hopeless. I'm here to tell you that mental disorders can affect anyone-- including Christians, that there is hope and healing available for your struggle, and that you can have the abundant life Jesus intends for you to have!
Hi. My name is Dr. Fortuchang. For the past 10 years I have been able to help multitudes of wonderful people, just like you, regain their hope, peace and joy despite their diagnosis. My treatment approach is somewhat unique-- I enrich traditional, evidence-based psychiatric treatment with Biblical principles on a Christian foundation. I am passionate about helping people uncover their inner conqueror and overcome the adversity. And, the icing on the cake is being able to help them use what they learned from that struggle to get them higher on the road to their life's purpose and calling.
In addition to using medication management (when needed), I use proven, evidence-based therapy techniques to help my patients get to the root of their problems. This helps to equip them with the tools they need to successfully navigate the ups and downs of life. Please don't allow another day to go by without getting the help you deserve. Your redemptive healing can begin now!
More Info About My Practice
As a Christian psychiatrist, I get the pleasure of including Biblical principles and inviting Christ into the treatment process. This is the manner in which God has called me practice psychiatry, and it has been immensely powerful and rewarding for me and my patients. In addition, though I'm a psychiatrist and believe in the role medication serves for the vast majority of my patients, I also believe in the power of prayer and the invaluable role of psychotherapy. In fact, I use a holistic approach to effectively address the mind, body, soul and spirit of my patients. I have found this to be very fruitful in getting to the root of the problems they face.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I have been blessed with the best job in the world! I get to help amazing people, just like you, break free from the chains of their past. I get to help them find their inner warrior, to help them see their real worth and value, and to help them uncover and address the wrong thinking patterns that have caused them and their loved ones so much turmoil. I get to see their true selves emerge-- similar to watching a butterfly spring forth from its cocoon. I absolutely love being used as a vessel by God to help instill hope, peace and joy in the lives of those I've been so privileged to treat.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
On this journey we call life, I've certainly had my own fair share of struggles. As Joyce Meyer puts it best, "The mind is the battlefield." And, as I think back on those times, I'm reminded of the verse of Scripture from Genesis 50:20 that says, "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good." And, though at the time it was difficult for me to see the adversity and struggle in my life as anything more than negative while I was going through it, I'm so grateful to God that I pressed onward and refused to give in and give up. Friends, if we will just trust God more than we trust our circumstances and refuse to believe the lies of defeat and condemnation, then we will be victorious! I know this to be true, both from personal and professional experiences. Having conquered many struggles in my past has helped me to genuinely relate to the struggles of my patients. So, don't give up and don't quit! Instead, reach out and get the help you deserve. Your mind renewal and life transformation can begin now.
