At Sound Body & Mind Psychiatric Services, we recognize that both emotional and physical factors contribute to the development of psychiatric symptoms. Genetics, environment and specific stressors or traumatic events can also play an important role. Finally, an individual's character, personality, temperament, and resilence all contribute to the clinical picture, and can shape the types of symptoms we see and the prognosis. No two individuals are exactly alike and therefore, no two individuals experience psychiatric symptoms in the exact same way. This is why we create a unique treatment plan to target your specific experience.

Are you tired of a life unlived? Therapy is a vessel for transformation, to help you connect with the deepest parts of yourself. Depression, anxiety, relationship problems, repeating dysfunctional patterns, self-defeating behavior, creative stagnation--are symptoms you have become disconnected from the deeper parts of yourself. As a result, your life has become unbalanced. As painful as they are, as much as you wish they would just go away, your symptoms are trying to tell you something. If listened to carefully, they direct us to what you have neglected, forgotten, or lost.

Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity. Sometimes teens may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol or sexuality. During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.

For help with adolescents or for a 22101 adolescent psychiatrist these professionals provide help for adolescent development and adolescent education. They include adolescent psychiatrists in 22101, adolescent psychologists, and adolescent counselors. They can help with adolescent behavior, adolescent learning and adolescent discipline.

22101 teen Psychiatrists also provide help for troubled teens in 22101 or troubled teen boys and girls. For parents of out-of-control teens, 22101 psychiatrists can help with communicating and understanding your teen. And psychiatrists in 22101 can help with teenager behavior and teen learning issues.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in 22101 is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

22101 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 22101 has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for 22101 child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in 22101). 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 22101, 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. 22101 Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
