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.

Why Telepsychiatry? My clients value the time saved by receiving mental health care outside of the doctor's office. With Telepsychiatry you do not have to contend with traffic, sit in a waiting room, or request time off from work for appointments. I also provide face to face, in office, services if the client prefers. I treat a wide range of conditions, from Autism, Asperger's Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Bipolar, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Schizophrenia. My clients seek greater understanding about themselves and relief from disabling symptoms.

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.

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.
