"I provide compassionate care and consider the whole person when developing treatment plans. Evaluation begins with a comprehensive assessment, including past psychiatric history, family and medical history, to determine if medication is indicated. I maintain the most up to date knowledge on medications and potential side effects. I provide support with insight and feedback to help patients address current concerns and life issues. Most often psychotherapy is the mainstay of treatment. I use psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and solution focused psychotherapies in my work with patients. I also emphasize mindfulness and healthy lifestyle choices."

The elation may manifest as unusual energy and overconfidence, playing out in bouts of overspending or promiscuity.

While the depression of bipolar disorder can resist treatment, mood swings and recurrences can often be delayed or prevented with a mood stabilizer, alone or combined with other drugs. Therapy is an important adjunct to drugs, especially for dealing with the work and relationship problems that can accompany the disorder.

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 Portland has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Portland child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Portland). 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 Portland, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have a MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a few years training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose some mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Portland Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have some basic training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
