Welcome, bem-vindo, bienvendio!
I want every one to feel welcome in my office! It is a tradition in my country of origin, Brazil, to create a feeling of acceptance and openness that is sometimes missing in American life.
I want to acquaint you with my approach, helping you, or your loved one, develop a more balanced and effective life.
First, I perform a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and formulate an initial a course of treatment which may include psycho-pharmaceuticals.
Second, the client is seen on a regular basis and periodic reviews are done, in session, to evaluate the efficacy of any medicine and how it’s helping the patient’s life..
Third, we may maintain or modify the Individualized treatment plans that focus on your concerns with an emphasis on dynamic combinations of psycho-pharmacology and psychotherapy for people with:
- Anxiety Disorder
- Mood Disorder
- Social Phobias
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders
- Attention Deficit Disorder
- Grief and Loss Counseling
I have been successful helping patients overcome life-challenges. Psycho-pharmacology is used to address a client’s current disposition in order to deal with issues that may be detrimental to a happy and effective life. Then, we work together to separate out what may be years of coping mechanisms. Finally, we’ll work together to sort out primary causes of stress and concerns and endeavor to lessen their impact on everyday life.
I am not a member of any HMO Panels. I have an Office Manager who bills patients and/or HMO’s.
