Robert B. White, M.D.

 

Philosophy of Psychotherapy:

"Psychotherapy is a special conversation, in a safe and private setting, with the goal of finding relief from emotional pain such as depression and anxiety.  I sometimes prescribe medications to support this process, and medications can help, but usually they are not a substitute for the learning and strengthening of the sense of self that the therapy relationship can provide."
