As a Board Certified Psychiatrist, I have extensive training and experience in psychopharmacology and psychotherapy. I have a broad range of expertise, and the best way for us to get started is with a 15-minute conversation on the phone. We must be a good fit for each other. Most of the time, we will work together in psychotherapy and use medicines when necessary.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Palo Alto 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 Palo Alto 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 Palo Alto, 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. Palo Alto Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
