Dr. Roth is a board certified adult and child psychiatrist.
He works with adults, teenagers, children, and families.

He is medical director at Commerce Psychiatric Services in Walled Lake. Dr. Roth is also an adult psychoanalyst, a graduate of the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute. He specializes in adult psychoanalysis as well as adult, adolescent, child and family insight and psychoanalytic psychotherapy in addition to medical psychiatry.  He is a clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Roth was director of consultation psychiatry at Huron Valley Sinai Hospital in Commerce Township, a DMC hospital from 1995-2016. These highly specialized qualifications give Dr. Roth the expertise to truly benefit his patients in ways that most other mental health specialists do not. It is unfortunate that too many psychiatrists limit themselves to being glorified medication pushers.

The purpose of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis is to help people change in ways they have felt blocked in life. Psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy promotes insight and understanding and removal of those self imposed blocks allowing a new openness and light of healing into ones life. The development of self-awareness/insight is a step in achieving that progress. As a psychoanalyst, Dr. Roth is very committed to helping you work in the most meaningful way toward reaching your full potential. Problems don’t necessarily have to be severe to justify making the first call and beginning this journey.

You probably have heard the term “worried well” and may even apply that to yourself at times when you are at a loss to describe a general malaise you are feeling. Many people, for example, may be highly functioning at work and home, but troubled inside. While the term “worried well” has sometimes been used pejoratively, being worried, having long-standing internal conflicts, or even just curious about yourself and how your mind works, are valid reasons for speaking with a psychoanalytic professional. People who have concerns that interfere with the way they want to live their lives benefit from therapy. Psychoanalytic treatment helps people address mental disorders and internal conflicts, and increase self-understanding and freedom.
