Please note that Dr. Goldberg provides the “Ask the Doctor” forum as an opportunity to respond to community-based questions regarding mental-health conditions and their treatment. His responses do not constitute a therapeutic relationship nor should they be used as substitute for an evaluation with a trained, mental-health professional. If you are in crisis, and seeking medical attention, please contact 911, Emergency Medical Services, or go to your nearest hospital emergency room. In order to locate a clinician for ongoing therapeutic support, Dr. Goldberg encourages you to contact your Insurance Provider for a listing of appropriate professionals in your area or consult the Psychology Today website.
