Psychiatrist

I am a doctor of psychiatry. There is a saying that people who go into psychiatry want to understand themselves more. I think this is very true and applies to me as well.  I have been fortunate to have had thorough training in psychiatry. I have finished medical school and then had four years of psychiatry residency, two years of extra training in psychodynamic psychotherapy,  Imago Relationship therapy, plus going for psychotherapy myself as a patient to see how therapy works. Many people may think that since I am a doctor, I should have it all together and shouldn’t have problems with anxiety or depression. Well, that cannot be any further from the truth.  I have wrestled with anxiety and depression. I have been to psychotherapy from second year of my resiedncy. As you can see, I have been on both sides of the table. Both have the training plus the experience. 

 

Looking back, I am grateful for my experiences. They made me stronger and wiser. While going through it, I wouldn’t have believed that! At those times I was irritable, discouraged, overwhelmed, and trying to figure out what was wrong with me. I am stronger now. I have treasures in my life forever as a result. Being able to feel comfortable with who I am, as a result of going for psychotherapy, is a tremendous asset. I can understand my patients, help them now and be a part of their story because I have been there myself.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
