As a double board certified Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, I provide clinical care in Georgia and will be providing tele-psychiatry in Texas. My mantra is MENTAL HEALTH which, for many, is achieved through forgiveness, healthy living, psychotherapy, spirituality, and pharmacotherapy as needed. I enjoy working with individuals and families whom are open to the often very emotional, slow and complicated therapeutic work required for change, recovery and healing. I recognize the healing power of Jesus, creativity, and healthy living; my therapeutic approach incorporates the interface of the mind, brain and spirit.

As a nurse for 30+ years I have learned that many physical illnesses are the result of emotional traumas, and unresolved grief. I believe everyone has the answers to their dilemmas deep within themselves. The reason that information is not readily available to our decision making is because life events has taught us how not to trust our inner truth. Our Logic, our Heart, and our Instincts are often in conflict with one another, which results in Confusion, Distrust, and Fear. Sometimes you needs someone just to listen and to help you learn how to listen to your self truths. This skill will help you grow in confidence and security.

Supportive therapy is part of every interaction I have with a patient and medications are used if/when necessary, working with the patient as a valued team member. I believe this will help set me apart from others.

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