My doctor just keeps throwing more pills at me. Isn’t there a way to deal with depression without taking all of this medicine?
What if I want to get pregnant. Can I stay well without taking medication?
My counselor talks more about herself than she listens to me!
Not again – awake at 2 AM and my mind won’t stop churning. Too much anxiety!
Maybe I get too close to people too fast and I always wind up getting hurt.
I just can’t control my emotions – I want a normal life!
What did I do last night? I said it wouldn’t happen again, but here I am waking up… somewhere else.
Maybe just a little more coke to help me get going, then I’ll quit.
Its not that bad, I can control it.
Crap – late for work again.
If only there was someone I could talk to about all this.
Are you ready to change?
To find the joy in life, the passion in relationships, and true success?
Working with an expert psychiatrist can help you find your way.
Most patients start by attending once weekly 45 minute sessions. I accept CIGNA and out of network (OON) insurance benefits (be aware that OON benefits often carry a much higher yearly deductible.) I am no longer accepting new patients for telemedicine – all new patients must be seen in person, on The Couch.
I generally do not offer medication management or split treatment (when the patient sees a different person for psychotherapy.) My practice is limited to psychotherapy, with or without medication, for adults.
I am always available for aviation psychiatric evaluations. I am board certified and a former US Navy Aviation Medical Officer, two important credentials the FAA looks for during the medical certification process.
Give me a call to set up a brief screening phone call.
The view from The Couch.
I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Texas at Dallas with a B.S. in biology. I received my medical education at Southwestern Medical School, part of the University of Texas Health Science Center at Dallas (now UTSouthwestern). After graduation, I was commissioned as a lieutenant in the United States Navy, Department of Medicine and proudly served four years, first at the Naval Hospital San Diego in the capacity of intern in psychiatry and then at the Naval Hospital in Corpus Christi where I received specialized training in aerospace medicine.
After leaving the military, I practiced general medicine for one year prior to beginning specialty training in psychiatry at Timberlawn Psychiatric Hospital in Dallas, Texas. Following three and a half years training at Timberlawn, I started my private practice in the Dallas area in 1993. I am board certified in Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
The scope of my practice includes comprehensive evaluation and treatment of all emotional disorders of adults.
