I have a deep conviction about the importance and value of therapy, of taking the time to know your inner world and understand what may underlie symptoms, such as anxiety or depression, or repetitive problematic behavior, such as repeated failed relationships. Psychodynamic or psychoanalytic therapy approaches are particularly helpful in bringing to awareness such underlying patterns and their origins, so that it is then possible to change them. All types of life problems and diagnoses respond well to these approaches.

My approach is based on integrative psychiatry, which uses medications, therapy and complementary medicine to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. I address the combined impact of sleep, lifestyle, relationships, nutrition and chronic medical conditions on well-being, and use cutting edge tools like genetic testing to guide personalized treatment with medication and supplements. I consider the patient’s cultural background in my assessments and I can provide treatment in Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. My goal is to help my patients create lasting changes and build vitality, resilience and purpose in life.

Sherif El-Asyouty
Psychiatrist, MD
Verified
Dr. El-Asyouty believes it’s important to not confuse the person with their illness. Alcoholism, substance abuse and chemical dependency are all diseases that affect the nervous system resulting in a loss of control over the use of substances. Dr. El-Asyouty is aware of the need to be very careful about using addictive medications in patients who are in recovery from addiction. Additionally, it is also important to recognize that people who are in recovery from depression and anxiety usually also require a change in the way that the individual processes feeling information, which Dr. El-Asyouty provides in a training program.

Your attempts to live a life closer to the essence of who you are, to find the heart and soul of yourself is a quest I too am on. Realizing that in our attempts to ward off pain our familiar self became a walled-in fortress, we seek a way out and a way forward to who we really are. My own search for reconnection to the spirit of my life has taken the form of being a psychotherapist to those trapped in that fortress and, as a result, feeling more and more unreal.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Atascadero 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 Atascadero has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. 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 , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Atascadero, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication.
