Medication or Therapy … or Both? 

We know that there can be some benefit to the use of psychiatric drugs to treat a variety of mental health conditions.

Dr. Goble works with patients in her Scottsdale office to assess and evaluate the need for medication.

She also teaches self-regulating techniques so that drug use may be reduced or eliminated.

Most commonly, Dr. Goble provides medication to alleviate physical symptoms, while providing individual therapy.

Your treatment options are determined by individual needs and desires.

Medication can provide relief from the physical effects of emotional and behavioral health problems (i.e., sleeplessness, nervousness, appetite disturbances).

Therapy can help identify root causes of problems AND help change thought patterns and behaviors.

Dr. Goble has developed an expertise in balancing the use of medicine and therapy.

My Philosophy:

From the time a person is born, many factors are influencing an individual’s development.

Nature vs nurture - child holding an adults hand.

Nature vs Nurture

A person’s genetics and the environment in which they live are involved in this process.

These factors which are referred to as ‘nature and nurture’, both play significant roles in how a person grows to understand themselves and their world.

Until an individual reaches developmental maturation or adulthood, they have limited capacity to understand themselves or their environment.

They are greatly dependent upon and influenced by the parents or caregivers in their lives.

How You View Yourself, Maturity with Grace

Over time, these factors affect the way an individual ‘perceives’ themselves and the world in which they live.

In order to enjoy the benefits that accompany a good quality of life, a person must develop the maturity to make wise choices, maximizing benefit and minimizing harm, both to self and others.

Children require help from parents or caregivers to learn the necessary skills to achieve developmental maturity.

The adults in their lives must model healthy thought patterns and behaviors in order for them to learn how to accomplish these goals.

In cases where this may not be attainable, due to severe medical or mental health conditions, challenging circumstances, etc., support from behavioral health professionals or adult caregivers will be necessary.

With the proper amount of love, support and guidance, a person can grow to become a mature person with a healthy sense of self and a healthy outlook on life.

These are essential factors to enjoying a positive quality of life and it is NEVER too late to learn!

These are many of the ‘normal’ concerns people have when they are suffering mentally and emotionally and do not know where to turn for help… Here is how I can help.

Most people do not know that from birth to young adulthood, they are not fully in control or responsible for all the factors that influence the way they think or feel. 

Genetics AND environment (nature and nurture) are highly influential in shaping the mind of a person. Both play a significant role in a person’s development. 

Genetics and Environmental factors shape the way we see ourselves, others, as well as the world in which we live. 

When our perceptions are based on limited information, and not objective facts, we are vulnerable to distorted thinking, which can lead to mental health problems. 

When we begin to understand that certain things were ‘not our fault’ or within our control, we begin to have freedom over shame and guilt.  

Recognizing that we have the ability to change our beliefs, thought patterns and behaviors empowers us.

This is how hope, healing, and freedom can occur!
