As a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner, I can provide high quality, affordable mental health care for your child without a long wait. My approach to care is collaborative, which means that you will ALWAYS have an active voice in the treatment. Not all mental health concerns require medication, of course, but if we do decide that medication may be helpful, my philosophy is always to "start LOW and go SLOW." My goal is to help your child achieve full remission of symptoms and an optimal level of functioning with as little medication as possible.

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

Austin Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment.

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 Austin has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.
