Do you prescribe medication?
No. Although some psychologists in New Mexico are licensed to prescribe, I have chosen to focus on psychotherapy and to leave medication to others. When it is needed, I collaborate with a local psychologist, psychiatrist, or my client's primary physician. For some clients, medication is crucial, and I am quick to recommend it and to work closely with the prescribing practitioner. For most of my clients, however, I have found medication to be more of a distraction than a help and usually a disappointment.
