I partner with my patients because I believe the best healthcare decisions are made when both provider and patient work together. Reach out to me if you are looking for a voice in your own healthcare, looking for someone who thoroughly understands medications and wants to be listened to very carefully. Contact me if you need someone who understands your anxiety and depression and is willing to comprehend your unique situation. Perhaps you are looking to make a change but don't know how to make the first step. Or perhaps you are tired of feeling a certain way but don't know how to articulate your feelings. Reach out!

I see mental health as a complex interplay between the body, mind and relationships. I will work with you, as well as your other healthcare providers and therapists, to understand and address your particular complexity and mental health goals. Whether you are just beginning your engagement with psychiatric medications or have long experience with them, I will work to find a treatment that will diminish the emotional and cognitive symptoms that can make life more more difficult than it needs to be. I will do this primarily through medication management but have training in a variety of psychotherapies that I can draw upon as needed.

As a provider specializing in pediatric and young adult patients, I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. I am warm, welcoming, and take my time to gain a holistic understanding of my patients, their families, and what kind of help they are seeking. I tailor my care to each patient considering their preferences, strengths, and limitations (internal and external). While I provide pharmacotherapy, medication alone is very rarely the answer. I also focus on developing coping, communication, and creative problem solving skills, as well as identifying additional appropriate supports that will help lead to recovery and success.

Our practice is centered on prioritizing health and true perspective, allowing problems to be better defined, and real solutions developed. This is the Revolution. In addition to general psychiatric evaluation and management, we employ IV NAD+ for safe outpatient detoxification from alcohol, opioids, and other drugs. Because of its natural healing effects, NAD+ is also used to optimize health, mental and physical, and therefore treats other neurodegenerative disorders.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Seattle is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Seattle Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Seattle has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Seattle child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Seattle). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Seattle, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have a MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Seattle Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
