I did my psychiatry residency at Feinberg School of Medicine/Northwestern Memorial Hospital. I am currently an Advanced Candidate at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis.
I view treatment as a collaboration between myself and the patient. I usually begin with asking the patient what brought them to so see me. After a period of discussing their medical and psychiatric symptoms with attendant history a treatment plan with recommendations is formulated and discussed with the patient. From this, based on my recommendations and the patients wishes, a cause of treatment is developed which can include basic medication management up to and including psychoanalysis or combination thereof.
