Your Mental Wellness is My Priority
Dr. B's Message to Future Patients
Hi, Dr. B here, a board-certified psychiatrist in Florida. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, and trauma disorders as well as optimizing your mental wellness. I create treatment plans that are effective and data-driven and also provide tons of psychoeducation and insight-building skills. I'm most effective if you are motivated to take an active, engaged stance in your own mental wellness.
Since I love brains and want to help you take care of yours, get ready to do some work! To get the most out of treatment with me you'll have to put in some effort. That may look like medication compliance, keeping a sleep or mood journal, or working on habit tracking and stacking. We’re going to address all of you, the whole you, from your physical health habits, self-care, emotional well-being, and genetic predispositions, and then find ways to maximize your mental wellness.
What makes working with me different? Two words: therapeutic alliance, which is really just a fancy way to describe our professional relationship where we work together to reach your treatment goals. Having a strong, caring, positive therapeutic alliance with me, means better treatment results for you.
It’s also about learning! I’m going to ask questions to learn more about you, and you can ask me questions about anything you want more information about regarding mental health and wellness!
Working with me involves addressing and improving current behaviors and habits so you can live the successful life you envision for yourself. But no matter what course of treatment you decide to take, we will work together to develop strategies and solutions to become the healthiest version of yourself.
If you are a Florida resident, please reach out to me today to see if we would be a good fit working together. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
