WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR VISIT
I implement effective pharmacology and supportive therapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that this is not a quick fix; this is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and caretaker alike. And in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.
