What I Don’t Treat
I treat survivors of sexual abuse and assault, who require a safe environment. I therefore do not treat sex offenders. Other practitioners in the community are available to fulfill this need.
I do not treat people whose primary issue is chemical dependency. Specialists in addiction medicine, addiction counselors, and 12-step support are recommended in these cases. However, I do treat people with mental health issues who are sober, and if needed, are actively working with chemical dependency specialists with whom I coordinate care.
People with medication-resistant, chronic mental illnesses who have not responded to numerous medication trials are referred to specialists in psychopharmacology.
I also do not do marriage counseling, couples counseling or family therapy. There are other professionals who specialize in these areas. I do not do legal or court evaluations, including expert witness, competency evaluations, parenting evaluations, mental injury opinions, or custodial evaluations. Experts in forensic mental health are best suited for this purpose.
