From the Doctor (Sponsored)

“What happened to psychiatrists who talk to their patients?" That's what everyone asked me when I started practicing in Plano in 1996. I began an "old-fashioned" private psychiatric practice, specializing in psychotherapy and focusing on the needs of my patients rather than on those of their insurance companies.

Of course, I use modern psychiatric drugs where appropriate; they provide much needed relief from depression, anxiety and other serious symptoms. However, many people also want and need more than they can get from five-minute medication checks. They want to understand and change things that create those symptoms and change patterns of behavior that keep them from enjoying the fullest and most productive lives they can have.

I remain committed to providing people high quality psychotherapy and to helping to find long-term answers to long-term problems.

I don’t have contracts with any insurers; I bill my patients at the time of their visit. I do provide each patient a detailed invoice that they can use to file for reimbursement if they choose to do so. I accept checks, credit and debit cards, and HSA/FLEX cards for payment. Please contact me directly by phone or email for fee information and scheduling appointments (there is an email link on the website).
