Hello! Welcome to my Psychiatry Practice. One of the blessings of our age is the ability to diagnose and treat mental health conditions that in the past were wrongly attributed to lack of will power, ‘character’ issues or problems being ‘all in your head’. Mental health conditions can cause barriers to achievement, decreased job performance, relationship problems, prolonged suffering, loss of job, loss of marriage, or worse. With effective treatment increased life achievement, better relationships and decreased suffering can occur. — Ignacio Valdes, MD, MS
