I try to establish a professional but interpersonal relationship with patients. I focus on getting to know the client over a period of time so that I am comfortable formulating a plan of treatment, including appropriate medication. I am not treating substance abuse/dependence disorders at this time. I believe that it's best to be friendly but still maintain a professional distance in order to provide the best care. I believe it's best to share my opinion regarding diagnosis, what medication(s) might be helpful, and what I would expect regarding the length of treatment.
