You may be feeling tired, overwhelmed,and even alone. What you do know is that you do not want to feel this way anymore. My approach to helping you re- access the "best you" is an integrative approach that fits you personally. Initially, determining what may be blocking you. It could be diet, a deficiency, a loss,a trauma or what may feel most confusing is, that you don't know why you feel this way.

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.

We regard people as inherently healthy and whole, in contrast to the conventional and widespread belief that people with psychiatric symptoms must be in long-term treatment. Psychological health can truly be achieved by learning new techniques of managing stress and overcoming fear-based habits. We prescribe medications as temporary tools for softening intense symptoms, allowing the deeper healing can occur. Alternative treatments such as vitamins and supplements are encouraged when appropriate. When depression or PTSD does not respond to conventional treatments, we may recommend a course of ketamine assisted psychotherapy.

Trauma causes us to get stuck in a sympathetic nervous system response and leaves us feeling uncomfortable in our own skin.
Are you self-medicating with drugs, alcohol, internet, food, sex, or pornography? Is there underlying trauma that causes you to act out in unhealthy ways? And have you tried to get help from a psychiatric provider in the past, only to find that you were entering in to a dictatorship and not a partnership? The truth is, there are many vices that people will reach for to self-medicate past traumas in an attempt to resist or drown out their emotional suffering. Connection is one of the best strategies when combating addiction, and isolation is at its worst in the midst of covid-19. But there is help....

Trauma and PTSD Psychiatrists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.



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.
