The human psyche has always been interesting to me and I had decided to go into psychiatry years before I finished medical school. I take a science-based approach to my work. I am especially interested in new and innovative approaches to the treatment of psychological disorders, which is why I always stay up to date with what is happening in this world. I approach problems creatively and am not afraid to experiment with different solutions depending on the patient's individual needs. It's important for me to know what function the person's problems serve in their personal life and what their own understanding of what is happening to them is.
