Dr. Susan Spivey is a general psychiatrist and psychotherapist. She started her psychiatric career in a housing unit for incarcerated adults with mental illness at the Oregon State Penitentiary, and is excited to begin her outpatient practice with Talkiatry. Dr. Spivey believes treatment works best when the patient and the provider take time together to explore the "problem" with curiosity and with appreciation for its context within the patient's life. She therefore offers medication management embedded with supportive therapy in 30-minute follow-up visits. She also has some availability for longer-term, exploratory psychotherapy.

Currently scheduling new patients for psychiatric evaluation and medication management for children, teens, adults and seniors 65+, living independently.
Although carefully chosen medications can quickly achieve much needed relief of anxiety, depression, insomnia and trauma symptoms, a thorough evaluation can also identify many opportunities for improvement without medications. The most effective treatment plan may include work-life balance, nutrition and sleep strategies, address, avoid or adapting to triggers, in addition to multiple psychotherapies. When needed, medications with the lowest side effects, easiest to use, most predictably effective & not addictive are recommended. Ultimately, it is up to each person to decide which strategies they will use to achieve wellness.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

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