‘I deal with a wide spectrum of mental illnesses. Primarily, I can help you plan therapy, medication treatment and then follow up after a thorough diagnosis. In addition, I always consider the possibility of psychotherapeutic work as well.
Along with the treatment, I consider it my priority to educate society about mental illnesses, to provide information that is understandable and professionally authentic for everyone, and to reduce the social distance between people related to mental illnesses. My basic principle is to use evidence-based therapies based on the latest professional protocols and to always be able to ‘stand with both feet on the ground’ in psychiatric care.’
