Psychiatrists are the only doctors who don't look inside the body to assess a problem. Think about it; all other doctors use imaging and labs to look inside a person’s body when making a diagnosis. That coupled with your symptoms is how they determine what the problem is. Unfortunately, mental health providers have learned that how a person feels is their only tool in assessing somebody. Because of this, psychiatrists often have no idea what’s causing the problem. This limits the treatment options to a prescribed “band-aid" that is used to reduce symptoms, instead of addressing the underlying cause of a problem.

Deciding to get help is no easy decision, especially if we have had negative experiences in therapy or with a provider in the past. I am here to listen to your needs, your goals for treatment and make a plan that works for you. My specialties include mood disorders, including treatment resistant depression, trauma and anxiety. In addition to medication management I offer ketamine therapy, which has been found to have dramatic effects on mood disorders and works quite differently than standard anti-depressants. My website contains additional information about this treatment and can answer questions you may have about this.

Do you spend too much time thinking about food or your body? Do you feel out of control with food? Or, do you feel terrible about yourself or need to compensate if you don't stick to a certain diet? If you think your relationship with food might be hurting your physical or mental health, I'm here to help. Eating disorders and disordered eating can feel overwhelming--but you are not alone. These problems often co-occur with mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, substance use, and suicidal thoughts. It's important to find a provider who has experience treating all of these problems together.

I seek to provide non-critical, empathic, and respectful listening which will enable my patients to feel safe as we explore together the sources of their distress. As a person achieves greater self-understanding, greater self-acceptance and compassion towards oneself becomes possible, and this helps relieve suffering and affords greater personal freedom to become one's authentic self.

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.
