What I Can Do - Home Page

What I can do to help you . . .
Have you wondered if a medication could help you feel better emotionally? Do you question whether you need help, or whether your mood state is normal? Have others suggested that you “get help,” or “talk to someone” about symptoms or diagnoses?

Is there any harm in asking a professional?

I am qualified to advise you about psychotropic medications that have helped others with similar concerns. As an experienced professional, I can help you understand various treatment options. I offer up-to-date clinical information and evidence-based answers to your questions regarding:

Depression
More than the “blues,” depression is a daily grind. Many experience it as an absence of fun, of feeling, or of enjoyment in life’s ordinary pleasures. Depression is with you almost every day, and all day long; it drains your energy and smothers your enthusiasm. It feels like it will never go away. It can cause insomnia or the inability to get out of bed, and dramatic changes in appetite. Diagnoses include dysthymia, major depression, cyclothymia, bipolar I or II, etc.

Anxiety
Feeling dread and/or panic ; sometimes from the moment you awake, during daily activities like working, driving, socializing, using an elevator or even returning phone calls. It may involve nightmares and functional incapacitation. Terms like social avoidance, acute and post-traumatic stress, specific phobias, anxious obsessions, agoraphobia, compulsive behaviors—all of these and more may be forms of anxiety.

Somatic Problems
Suffering with a physical condition (headaches, fatigue, low back pain, muscle tension, etc.) that affects you emotionally, or—alternatively, an emotional condition that aggravates a physical problem. It is often very hard to know the difference. Somatic conditions can seriously stress the relationship between a patient and his/her physicians.

Sleep Disorders
Insomnia, excessive daytime sleepiness, fragmented/shallow sleep, disruptions due to shift work, jet lag, early AM wakening, etc.

Thought Disorders
Very distressing and usually obvious to others: A global loss of organizational ability and disordered thinking. Delusions, paranoia, altered perceptions (visual or auditory) and disturbing thought content. Thought disorders often destroy interpersonal relationships—even with close family and friends.

Substance Abuse or Chemical Dependency
Is it “recreational use”? Do others see it as worrisome and destructive? Unable to cut down or quit, despite numerous attempts? Is use of a substance causing persistent negative consequences in your life? I can screen for problems, refer for evaluation, and provide medical detoxification in conjunction with professional treatment.

"A desire to be in charge of our own lives, a need for control, is born in each of us. It is essential to our mental health, and our success, that we take control.”

--R. F. Bennett

 
 

 
 

"Insanity is often the logic of an accurate mind overtasked.
