Jacob Towery, MD didn’t develop his specialty for dialectical behavior therapy overnight. Rather, it happened across a lengthy scholastic journey, one that included a stay at Duke University for his bachelor’s degree in psychology, another sojourn at University of Virginia’s School of Medicine, and a final stop at Stanford Hospital & Clinics for an adult-psychiatry residency and fellowship. He bolstered what he had learned by teaching elementary school and consulting adults and adolescents at inpatient units, outpatient units, and a maximum-security jail. Nowadays, at his office, he draws upon his experiences and knowledge to provide evidence-based psychotherapy for kids, teens, adults, or entire families. Mindful not to overprescribe meds, he helps his patients with everything from ADHD to depression to relationship problems.

Dr. Edward Rubinstein and the staff of West Coast Foot Laser understand the embarrassment and discomfort caused by nails infected with onychomycosis. Besides limiting the desire to wear open-toe galoshes, the nail fungus can cause painful health issues if left untreated. The center combats these infections with powerful beams, which typically require a single session to eliminate the problem at the source and allow healthy nails to gradually appear.
