Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Swoiskin "My personal philosophy is that each of us has a basic need to be deeply understood by another human being. We all yearn, suffer, and celebrate, often privately, and often in ways that are not fully known even to ourselves. I strive to help each person feel safe enough so that such private and unknown thoughts and feelings can emerge and be explored together. Whether you are looking for help through a crisis or with a long-standing illness or sense of discontent, my aim is to understand who you uniquely are and how I can help you heal and grow.

Some people wonder if psychiatric medications ought to play a role in their treatment. Likewise, you may wonder whether dietary changes, nutritional supplements, mindfulness practices, or movement therapies may help alleviate your distress.  I welcome your questions and bring both extensive experience and the same attitude of thoughtfulness and collaboration to these matters as with any other aspect of our conversation."
