We all have personal puzzles to solve and discoveries to be made. Sometimes, our emotional and behavioral issues can be very difficult to sort out.

The mission of DearShrink.com was to not only furnish visitors, potential clients, and clients with information about Dr. Sterling and his private practice of psychiatry, but to also provide a Web site experience which is highly educational and which will assist in reducing the stigma attached to many aspects of the mental health treatment environment.
However, since 2009, Dr. Sterling's mission has been to intensely focus on reading primary research literature and becoming comprehensively informed on the huge amount of knowledge that has been gained about the downside and upside of the attention deficit disorder brain since 2008. He has read in excess of 20,000 pages of primary literature since 2009 and published two editions of his book Adult ADD Factbook -- The Truth About Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Updated 2011 and 2013. They are available on Amazon.com.
The scope of Dr. Sterling's reading and writing has made it impossible to continue the former mission of DearShrink.com, which was to provide readers with a broader collection of and links to mental health and wellness information. The many outdated pages still contain original writing by Dr. Sterling that has stood the test of recent time. However, over the next few months, Dr. Sterling will be dismantling and remodeling most of the DearShrink.com website.

Humor and a Sense of Perspective.
Significant doses of humor can be found at DearShrink.com, since we believe that viewing life's roller-coaster ride with a sense of perspective is a healthy thing. To provide additional resources for those seeking a balanced view, DearShrink.com provides Web columns about the word "shrink", about Freud (and others), and pages devoted to reflections on life, consisting of poetry, essays, and photographs.
Even though humor appears to be good for the central nervous system and general physical health, DearShrink.com also believes, if you are not careful, that humor can be a distraction and an opiate of the masses. We have our serious, mental health activist side. Dr. Sterling was Chair of the King County Mental Health Advisory Board (KCMHAB) from 2004-2006. He is a strong advocate for better mental health care in the Washington State and is a member and contributes to Seattle-area chapters of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
