Issues pertinent to the female professional, particularly work life balance are of special interest to me.
People are complex. A person is not a disorder, a disease, or a diagnosis. Throughout our lives we find ourselves in circumstances that bring our attention to the fact that we could know ourselves better and if we did, we could be happier and more balanced in our lives. My treatment philosophy centers on the belief that therapy can be valuable for everyone, particularly at times of intense change, loss, or personal trauma. With expertise in both psychopharmacology and individual psychotherapy, I maintain a patient centered, integrative approach to treating the whole person.

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.

How to find the right Psychiatrist?

If you're finding it difficult to find the right psychiatrist in Palo Alto, don't worry--you're not alone. Psychiatrists are highly specialized professionals.

If you're still finding it difficult to find a psychiatrist in Palo Alto, call or contact the professionals here and ask for a psychiatric referral. You can also call the psychiatric nurses in Palo Alto as they tend to be affiliated to a network of psychiatrists in their area ( Palo Alto). Or just chat to them to see if they can help.
