In the beginning

The lunatic, the lover and the poet have such seething brains, such shaping fantasies… — Shakespeare

I have been a practicing psychiatrist for the past ten years now. I began my practice as an employed physician. At that time, I was primarily involved in medication management and electroconvulsive therapy or (ECT).ECT

After 10 years, and over 6,000 ECT treatments administered to patients, I found myself turning back to the interest in dynamic psychotherapy I was discovering when I was a resident in psychiatry. I find myself now in a journey of self discovery and intensive learning in dynamic psychotherapy with my patients in my new private practice. This blog will be the testament of my journey in learning technique and application of therapy with my patients. I am pleased to have you along for the ride.


Stephen Taylor, M. D.
