As a pediatric and general psychotherapist and psychopharmacologist/psychiatrist, I approach the assessment and care of my clients with depth and breadth, incorporating a systems approach (assessing and treating the systems of school and work, peers, romantic partners, families, parents, etc) as well as an eclectic individual approach based primarily in psychodynamic psychotherapy, but incorporating a number of cognitive-behavioral and relaxation techniques, as well as interpersonal and dialectical behavior therapy techniques. @markwwilsonmd

It's human to be lonely, yet there is shame in it. We are "supposed" to seek out the company of other humans. I want to address the real feelings of isolation and loneliness without shame or guilt. If you are lonely out there, I salute you.
We haven't gotten a corporate sponsor...yet. In this episode, we speculate on who could potentially give us money. Some options include prescription drug companies, Lindsay Lohan (also welcome to be a guest), Purell, Angry Orchard Cider, and not Wellbutrin.
