I can't imagine an ideal client because I see a broad range of clients and I enjoy helping them all. The typical patient who comes to me needs help with depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, addiction, or another disorder and may have a family history of these symptoms or diagnoses. They are usually wanting to understand their symptoms and gain an accurate understanding or diagnosis. Medication may be appropriate for some of these patients. For patients who do not find relief from medication or who experience side effects, we offer TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) which is non-drug treatment for depression and anxiety

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

San Diego 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 San Diego 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 San Diego, 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. San Diego 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 San Diego, don't worry--you're not alone. Psychiatrists are highly specialized professionals. They tend to be busy--appointments can be short (e.g. 15 mins.)--and so as a potential client you can sometimes feel lost or confused. Don't let this deter you.

Begin first by checking the psychiatrists listed here nearest to you. If they are limited in number, expand out your search geographically (Broaden your Search) and see who's available further afield.

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