Dr. Budoff's Treatment Philosophy

I am a warm, caring, and accessible psychiatrist who strives to provide a very individualized approach to treatment.  Every person is unique, and as such their treatment should be personalized.  Most patients benefit from psychotherapy; some require medication. By providing both, I can offer well-coordinated and comprehensive care.  My goal is to help patients understand the underlying conflicts that keep them from experiencing their lives to the fullest.

Talk therapy, as well as medication therapy when necessary, provides long-lasting benefits, giving an individual the tools they need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns of behavior, and overcome present, as well as future, challenges. Therapy helps people attain a better understanding of themselves, as well their goals and values.


I specialize in state-of-the-art, outpatient treatment of the major psychiatric disorders and in helping patients deal with issues that “get in their way.”  Most of my patients go to work or to school and lead “normal lives.” Other patients have more significant distress.  I treat each person according to their needs, whether it is with interpersonal psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, family therapy, pharmacotherapy, or a combination of these methods.  I help my patients with every aspect of their mental health care, and integrate modalities when necessary.
