Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. James "I adhere to the biopsychosocial model regarding psychiatric/psychological conditions.  The biology is significant, given all we know about the neurobiology of psychiatric conditions and the mechanisms of action of psychotropic medications.  Psychological considerations are essential to determine how and why a person experiences self and situations in particular ways, and how these dispositions developed and continue to perpetuate, hoping things can be reconfigured.  Social circumstances are also of great importance - status of close relationships, family matters, work situations, household situations, all require examination and understanding."
