Is Dr. B the Right Fit for You?
Here are some reasons we'd be a great fit!
You’re new to the idea of medication
You’ve had a less-than-ideal experience with meds in the past
You want combined therapy and meds to ensure you get the most out of our time together
You love learning about your brain and taking an active part in your mental wellness
You want longer, virtual appointments at times like lunch and evenings

You won’t consider meds AT ALL
You need prescriptions for controlled medications (ie Xanax, Adderall, etc)
You’ve had a recent mental health hospitalization
You’re on medications that require regular labs and vital signs
You’ve been having suicidal thoughts, or have trouble staying safe because of self-harm
**I strongly recommend IN-PERSON CARE if your situation is listed here

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 maximizing your mental wellness. I create treatment plans that are flexible and effective and also provide tons of psychoeducation and insight-building skills.

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 and self-care, to emotional well-being and genetic predispositions. Then we'll find ways to optimize your mental wellness.
