Dr. Castro's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Castro "At the age of 65 (2018) I bring 35 years of psychiatric learning and experience to the table. My training has included a diverse range of skills starting with psychoanalysis but progressing to cognitive behavioral therapy and a multitude of other approaches. I have particular skill and experience with treating the distress that adults experience for years, following dysfunctional or traumatic developmental experiences. I keep entirely up to date with the newest medical approaches but combine this with many years of experience with well worn but still effective older approaches. As well, over the past decades I have been involved in treatment of addictions and have been certified not only by the American Board of Psychiatry but also the American Board of Addiction medicine."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Castro "I have a rather in depth approach focused on understanding the issues as accurately as possible.  I then use either evidence based medical approaches and/or established psychotherapy approaches using a combination of insight approaches to enable understanding and cognitive behavioral techniques to use this understanding to enable change."
