I am a general psychiatrist who welcomes all patients; adults, children, adolescents, elderly. My approach is psychoanalytic though when indicated I use medications. I am generally conservative with psychiatric medications because of their long term side effects.
I have special training in using psychotropic drugs (fellowship in psychopharmacology). I also have fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry from Harvard Medical School.
I have special interest in treating narcotic addiction and I am authorized to prescribe Suboxone. I love analyzing dreams and much of my psychotherapeutic work utilizes the technique of dream analysis.
I have been in private Practice for the last 25 years. Prior to that I was Director of Residency Training at the VA Medical Center. Allen Park, MI
I have over 100 publications.
