Dr. Corelli's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Corelli "I am a board-certified Stanford trained adult psychiatrist in practice for over 35 years. I provide compassionate, empathic and knowledge based care. Together, we will gain insight and knowledge about you and where your strengths and conflicts may be. Each person comes with a unique background and through this perspective, I will work with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that is tailored to your needs. It is important to understand you as a whole person so that I can provide you with the most up-to-date treatment recommendations. My areas of specialty include mood disorders, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders and life transitions including divorce and loss. I provide psychotherapy and medication with integration of both when indicated. I received my MD from Stanford University School of Medicine and completed my psychiatry training at Stanford University Medical Center. My practice is located close to downtown Palo Alto with satellite offices in Pacifica and Half Moon Bay for patients who live on the coastside. You can visit my website at: http://web.stanford.edu/~corelli/ and you can read some of the articles I have written about my clinical interests at: http://web.stanford.edu/~corelli/shortworks.html"

Dr. Corelli Says:

Psychotherapy is a careful and slow process and it is important to know everything about the patient not just their symptoms. I want to know your strengths and vulnerabilities so that I can understand the problems you are struggling with and to see if these might be repetitive patterns from the past that can be changed once they are recognized and understood. It is important to talk about your feelings in treatment and not act on them.

I tried to make an appointment with Dr Corelli. He sent me a large amount of paperwork to fill out ahead of time, including the top half of a claim form (which, as a physician myself, I have never made a patient fill out). He also required me to sign a statement that I would pay his full rate of...more

Terrific experience, and ongoing. I've been w Dr Corelli for about 6 years- originally to help me stop making stupid choices (I have) and now to stay on track.
