"INTEGRATIVE PSYCHIATRY for CHILDREN, TEENS, ADULTS, and COUPLES. I see my role as one who accompanies you on a journey towards optimal health, vitality, and personal growth. Depending on your unique needs, my approach combines conventional modalities (i.e., medications and therapy) with complementary (i.e., botanicals, nutriceuticals, nutrition, acupuncture, guided imagery, etc.). The goal is not merely to treat symptoms, but to address the matrix of underlying causes and the obstacles that keep you from living your best life."

"Mental health difficulties have many dimensions. I combine my medical background and psychotherapy training with a compassionate and humanistic approach. In other words, I try to shed light on your difficulties in any way possible. In the course of "medication management," we may simultaneously realize important personal and relational patterns that underlie some of the symptoms that bring you to treatment. If you are seeing a therapist separately, I will collaborate with that clinician so that we can coordinate and deepen our shared understanding of your difficulties."

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Oakland Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Oakland specialize in age groups (so check for Oakland child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Oakland). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Oakland, or mental health nurse practitioners, perform many of the same functions as a psychiatrist. This includes diagnosing mental illness and prescribing medication. Oakland Psychiatric nurse practitioners also act as a therapist, helping patients with depression, anxiety and suicidal individuals, as well as other conditions that can be remedied with counseling.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on medications so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
