Welcome to my Psychiatry Practice specializing in the treatment of Anxiety and Depression. My strategy is to first control symptoms using Cognitive Behavior Therapy or Medication. Later, if the patient is inclined, we will explore the roots of Anxiety, Depression, Self Consciousness or Relationship Problems with Psychotherapy.
