Greetings! I am Mark Muse, psychologist. I've studied and practiced psychology for the last forty years, and in that time I've come to appreciate different aspects of our nature that keep our mental health in balance. It is important that we take into consideration our biological needs as well as our psychological and social functioning if we are to strive for optimum wellbeing. That is why I incorporate medication management into psychotherapy and work closely with prescribing physicians who consult with my clients. While a small minority of my practice will need pharmacologic support while in therapy, for those who do it is an essential aspect of my ongoing assessment to provide an interface between physician and psychologist. I am a counseling/clinical psychologist with expertise in diagnosing and treating emotional symptoms arising from social and personal issues. I am also a medical psychologist with expertise in the use of psychopharmacological agents to treat clinical symptoms of emotional distress stemming from biochemical imbalance. 
I treat conditions arising from stress such as phobias, excessive worrying, fear, sensations of panic, tension and anxiety; and I also treat mood disorders which give rise to depression, fatigue, impatience, irritability, and lack of concentration.



My subspecialties, of which I have published extensively, are pain management, anxiety disorders, and psychopharmacology.
