About my Practice

    I have been in practice for over 25 years, and have had the privilege of knowing some of my patients throughout many stages of their lives. I always consider psychosocial elements when discussing a treatment plan with my patients. A patient requesting medication may turn out not to need it, and I am somewhat conservative in my style. I treat the whole patient — not just a single symptom.

    My practice is devoted to helping individuals who suffer from depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other conditions. I have expertise in treating eating disorders. Some patients are referred by their therapists when both agree that the patient should discuss adding medication to their treatment regimen. In this case, I typically prescribe medication in the context of the patient continuing psychotherapy with their therapist. Other patients come to me as their first step in treatment, and we will work together to come up with an individualized treatment plan.

“Dr. Friedman doesn’t just hand you a prescription and show you the door. She asks you about your family, your work, your health…she sees you as a person. I always leave feeling better than when I walked in. She really cares and it shows.”
