      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Daken says...

      I completed my initial training at the military's premier medical school in Bethesda, Maryland.  After completing my residency in 1998, I fulfilled my service obligation with the U.S. Navy then entered civilian practice in 2006.  I have worked in multiple settings, including inpatient, intensive outpatient, public clinics, home visits, and -- for the past six years -- in private practice.  I am board-certified in Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology.

      Dr. Daken's Care Philosophy

      Proficient in both medication treatment and psychotherapy, I provide a holistic approach to patient care. I take the time to hear the breadth and depth of what a person is experiencing, and dedicate the same effort to crafting a treatment plan in a spirit of collaboration. The plan might involve medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of the two. As treatment proceeds, I remain available for consultation.

      In providing psychotherapy, I work to cultivate a person's capacity to make sense of the problem at hand by drawing out insights from past experiences and also from the here-and-now of therapy sessions. If prescribing only, I am happy upon request to collaborate with treating therapists.

      I work with both adults and older teens. My practice is located in downtown Silver Spring, close to the metro station and convenient to both downtown DC and the northern suburbs. I invite you to call to schedule an appointment or to arrange a complimentary introductory telephone consultation.
