A person suffering from psychological or behavioral problems has often been emotionally wounded, violated and or not provided the unique sensitivity and skill set required for their particular emotional or educational experience and sensitivity. For every individual struggling with attention, behavioral inappropriateness, anxiety, sadness or poor thought control, there is a unique and meaningful explanation that needs to be explored and cultivated. Through this process, an individual does change. What we call mental disorders (illness) is NOT the result of a simple chemical imbalance!
True healing comes from restoring and renewing the things that define and reflect our humanity, such as intimacy, community, art, music, patience, spirituality and play. Often adults need to recognize sensitivities and skill set lapses that were conditioned. More often in our society, we need to be patient and allow the growth and change to happen with a natural growth process that is guided and taught. In addition, our gut, what we eat, how we sleep and interact in this world environment can significantly impact how we feel, think and behave. Taken together, we need to assess the entire person and their life to better understand why someone may be struggling.
Dr. Watson is trained as an analytical - behavioral clinical psychologist, with specific training and expertise related to critically analyzing mental health research as it applies to the clinical practice. He has expertise at working with severe disorders and pathology, and is an expert sought out both nationally and internationally for his knowledge about best evidence based practices as it relates to the usage and often misuse of psychotropic medications. He both provides treatment, consultation, forensic - court testimony and a full range of diagnostic evaluations.
Dr. Watson provides services throughout the United States and abroad, often focusing upon an individual's wish and right to be treated without the use and reliance upon psychiatric medications. For this reason, he can often foster a working alliance with people often labeled "treatment resistant" and or "non-compliant". He welcomes agency referrals for their most difficult challenges. Dr. Watson also works with people electing to use psychotropic medications.
Although Dr. Watson may often not recommend usage of psychotropic medications, based upon the outcome peer reviewed long term literature, (see links to side), he does recognize many individual find psychotropic medications as being helpful and life saving. He holds no religious or other forced aversion to using or not using such intervention, and understands that taking drugs can be very successful, and dangerous, for controlling thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Dr. Watson specializes in fundamental long lasting change via psychological intervention...
not chemical control or restraint.
