Dr. Taxman is a Psychiatrist and trained Psychoanalyst. His passion is psychotherapy, developing a unique treatment plan for each patient based on their strengths and needs. Dr. Taxman works with patients age 16 and older. 

His clinical philosophy:  

“Patients often don’t know what the “real“or core problem is.  They don’t know the solution, or they wouldn’t be in my office.  Yet, the patient is the only one that actually has the answers.  My job is to help them find the real problems and their best solutions…not unlike an experienced guide on a mountain path.  This approach demands an initial position of humility and respect on the therapist’s part.” 

In addition to his private practice in Mequon, Wisconsin, Dr. Taxman is an Associate Clinical Faculty member of the Medical College of Wisconsin, Department of Psychiatry where he teaches theory and clinical technique to psychiatry residentsHe also teaches advanced theory and technique to advanced students in China via internet classes and supervision.
