Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McClure "Although medications can be an important part of treatment, my treatment philosophy emphasizes a deeper understanding of the whole person, which is based in my psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy training. Therefore, my diagnostic intake sessions are lengthy, and every so-called "medication management" followup presents an opportunity to enhance our understanding of your complete life situation. People respond much better to treatment when they feel truly understood as a person, rather than as a "diagnostic entity". Of course, this requires extra time and attention to detail...which means that I am not a participating provider for any insurance company. My billing clerk will bill your insurance for you, but you will be expected to pay for each session in full at the time of service. PPO plans will usually send you a check to cover part of the fee, but an HMO, Medicaid or Medicare will not."
