Medical or Psychiatric Assessment - here we review your current difficulties, how they started and developed, and relate them to your individual history.  We will look for possible contributing biological, psychological and social factors. This will also include your personal strengths as well as associated risks. Through such holistic assessment, a medical diagnosis can be established.  Furthermore, we can discuss advantages and disadvantages of available treatment options.

If we decide for treatment with medication, I can prescribe and supervise the treatment progress and adjust it if needed.

I provide second opinions in regards to pharmacological and psychological treatments.
