NEWS: Office Open; Video Sessions possible; Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy

1. OFFICE OPEN–As of March 20, 2020 we are open on a restricted basis, with video-based  psychotherapy sessions and  cutting back neurofeedback/biofeedback to very urgent cases, taking full-contemporary precautionary measures to minimize the spread of the current COVID-19 pandemic. We ask that you not come in if you are feeling indications of that illness (knowing that full knowledge is always impossible, and medical knowledge is still being gathered).  I plan to come in to the office and should be able to provide physical prescriptions to established patients who require them; at the present, I am not set up for e-prescribing of restricted medications.

2. ZOOM video sessions are available for psychotherapy. My ZOOM.com account is HIPPA compliant. Other channels such as FaceTime and Skype are also available; please inquire.

3. I have had special training in ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) and offer KAP to selected patients. We are an approved Spravato treatment facility for treatment-resistant depression; this option is rarely open to new patients.
