"Most problems have a solution, most illnesses are treatable. Change begins with a first step toward doing things differently than you have done them before. I believe the purpose of therapy is ultimately not to be in therapy and to aquire new skills to support positive change. I am not a therapist who will sit back quietly, nod and give you an occassional 'Uh-huh'. I have Master's degrees in both Counseling and Nursing. I work in the ER at Harborview, at my office practice and with the psychiatric needs of older adults."

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Psychiatrists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Seattle or for a Seattle CBT psychiatrist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

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