Dr. Stein evaluates and treats adult men and women with mood, anxiety, attentional and other behavioral difficulties using a variety of approaches, including:
"I have been a medical doctor for 13 years and feel very fulfilled by my work helping people reach and maintain mental health and balance. I chose psychiatry as my medical specialty because I thoroughly enjoy both the science of medicine and the application of psychotherapy - both effective tools that can be used independently or in combination to achieve emotional wellness. l am also very interested in the use of supplements (such as omega-3 fatty acids, certain herbs, vitamins and minerals), relaxation techniques and exercise in the management of mental health."
