Dear Dr. Royster:
I am a consumer of
mental health services provided by the D.C. Department of Behavioral
Health (DBH). I receive weekly out-patient psychotherapy from Alice E.
Stone, M.D., a third-year psychiatry resident working under the
supervision of Earl Baughman, M.D. (St. Elizabeths Hospital). I have
been a DBH consumer since mid-year 1996, 19 years. I do not derive
benefit from supportive psychotherapy. I believe I need psychodynamic
psychotherapy. Is there something that DBH could do to help me obtain
I enclose for your information a psychological profile that details my personality problems as I see them.
