Dr. Chesen strives to provide a non-judgmental, safe, and private place for patients to actively engage in treatment for all psychiatric problems. She is a general psychiatrist, Board Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, who uses trauma-informed, LGBTQ-friendly, and culturally-sensitive evidence-based practices to evaluate and manage her patients’ symptoms. While diagnosis is a critical part of initial and ongoing care, patients find that the focus in Dr. Chesen’s office is about meeting their personal goals, and about achieving true remission of symptoms whenever possible—sustainable optimal functioning in all spheres of life is the goal.
