"My practice as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist is influenced by an appreciation of the unique biological, psychological and social aspects that contribute to emotional well being and/or suffering of an individual person. Biological treatments like medications can be part of a solution but must be used rationally and carefully and are rarely "cures." Insight into the psychology of the individual, especially the hidden parts of thoughts, feelings and behaviors can be invaluable even if hard won in psychotherapy. Attending to one's social environment in concert with the above areas is the final part of effective treatment."

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Solana Beach 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 Solana Beach specialize in age groups (so check for Solana Beach child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Solana Beach). 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 Solana Beach, or mental health nurse practitioners, perform many of the same functions as a psychiatrist. This includes diagnosing mental illness and prescribing medication. Solana Beach 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.
