He/Him/HisAdult Psychiatrist, MD Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Dr Fischbach leverages his training in Neuropsychiatry to apply brain-science principles to help individuals 18+ struggling with Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, OCD and ADHD. He blends the rigor of Neuropsychiatry with the relational approach of a Psychoanalytically-Informed Therapist, drawing from his training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. He is motivated to give the personalized, warm care he would want a family member to receive. He takes care of individuals who already have therapists ("medication back-up") and as an integrated prescriber and therapist himself.
Dr Fischbach takes a layered approach to psychiatric diagnosis. After diligently screening for traditional psychiatric symptoms, and prescribing medications judiciously to reduce symptom burden, he strives to look beneath the surface to identify areas where psychotherapeutic approaches may enhance an individual's quality of life in a targeted way. What happens next looks different for every client. One person may benefit from a focus on attachment styles in relationships. A client struggling with OCD symptoms may gain most from adopting an Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) approach. Yet another person may find balance from a focus on the Mindfulness Tradition. What unifies Dr Fischbach's different therapeutic techniques is his focus on treating every client not as a collection of symptoms or diagnoses, but as a mosaic of an individual, seeking a return to wholeness. In therapy, some individuals may benefit from visits every 2 weeks or every month; others may gain most from traditional weekly treatment.
Dr Fischbach's treatment philosophy is influenced deeply by his mentors and colleagues at Brown University, Brown Medical School, Harvard Medical School/Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and by the Zen Buddhist Tradition.
