Provider type: Psychologist
Serving: Ages 8-40
I have always believed in the importance of understanding each patient as a whole person, evaluating both physical and emotional health needs.
I know the importance of talking with my patients, becoming aware of them as individuals in the context of their family and their community.
This overall approach allows me to determine how various therapy options can help relieve symptoms. I have studied the role of psychotherapy and/or medication therapy for providing the best benefit. I can offer a patient recommended treatment choices, and together we can develop and update treatment plans to achieve a best sense of well-being.
I graduated with a MD degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in 1970. There I completed a psychiatric residency, followed by specialty training in neurophysiology research. I am board certified in psychiatry and pain medicine.
