Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Berschling "Providing time, a willingness to listen and trying to understand an individual's communication to you. Psychotherapy and psychodynamic therapy attempts to treat the person in their current life situation and not their label. An individual needs to learn how to live their life and not their label. In this current environment, medications are an important assist to therapy, however they are an assist to therapy,  not a substitute for psychotherapy."
