Dr. Spiro offers a wide range of treatment options for addressing the complicated kinds of biological, psychological and environmental problems each of us can face. Whether he will help you approach your issues with psychotherapy alone, with medication alone, or with a combination of the two, will depend on the nature of your situation, on his assessment of the best way to proceed forward AND on your particular preferences.
Some people prefer to err on the side of caution and start medications early to help with day-to-day symptoms. Others, who believe in the power of talking things through, in the power of behavioral change and in the power of psychotherapy, would prefer to wait. There are rarely "one size fits all" answers. Dr. Spiro will help walk you through what your options are and how to work in a way that respects your values and your desire to feel better.
