Practice Mission Statement

As a psychiatrist with a specialty practice in both psychoanalytic treatment and neurofeedback I am dedicated to upholding the ethical ideals of the many professional organizations to which I belong.  In essence, I strive to keep my knowledge of the fields I am involved with up-to-date; every patient has the privilege of privacy and confidentiality; the fee-for-service arrangement is an implied contract that makes clear what the doctor is paid and that no patient will be exploited in any way.  Fees often have psychological complexity and may need to be discussed together on more than one occasion. Boundary issues are important for all practitioners, particularly in psychological treatments; I bear the primary responsibility for ensuring that healthy boundaries are maintained so that the treatment will remain protected especially when complex emotional, sexual, and psychological issues emerge.
