Learn about Dr. Brindley

Care Philosophy

I work with patients in psychotic distress as well as mild and moderate anxiety and depressive issues: Individuals, couples, families, adolescents, and children. I incorporate psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, somatic, and holistic methods. I listen to the patient's concerns and ask questions to explore past and present stressors and develop collaborative strategies to manage and suggest change where indicated. The patient is the center of my work. Careful listening is my most critical skill.

Patient Comments (1)
in Olney, MD |
Was referred to this person. I left a voice message that was not returned. i tried again a week later, explaining I had left a message prior and hoped she could get back to me. She called back immediately to admonish me for not realizing that she would not call back if she had no openings as her voice greeting said. It does not say that. When I told her so..she said it says it for "everyone else". I re-called just to check-Doesn't say it! nasty, unprofessional and probably a bit unhinged.
From my perspective, I tried to explain why I had not returned the call but I clearly failed. I'm sorry that she felt disrespected and hope she has found someone two work with.
