Offering a non-toxic approach to treating the whole patient. In addition to psychotherapy, Dr. Tarantolo safely helps patients wean themselves off psychotropic drugs.

The person needs a good support network and must be in therapy, preferably with me, but on occasion I will work with another therapist if they are fully on board. I don’t think these drugs are used for legitimate “brain diseases” . That doesn’t mean that there wasn’t anything wrong with that person’s response to life’s challenges. The core question is “How did you get yourself into this mess?! The antidepressants are the easiest, the antipsychotics the most difficult. If the person has had psychotic experiences, we must be very cautious, go very slowly. Qualities needed: courage, love, commitment.
