Dr. Adair has been in private practice in the Bay Area since 1989 working with adults only. His work is primarily psychotherapy from a Jungian perspective(he is not a certified analyst). In this regard he uses a variety of modalities including face to face therapy, dream analysis, active imagination and Sandplay.
Although he has limited the medication aspect of his practice, he does do some medication management primarily with patients who are anxious and/or depressed. He does no inpatient psychiatry at this time.
