Susan Daly grew up in Southeastern Connecticut and since graduation from medical school and subsequent fellowships, has continued to practice psychiatry in Connecticut. “We’ve almost all been anxious or depressed at some point”, she says. At any given time, one in five adults is struggling with issues that make them unhappy, withdrawn, or struggling with relationships or work. The nice thing about psychiatry is that it can help restore your own ability to become optimistic again. She has seen that most patients, with the help of psychiatry, become happy with their lives again.

Emotional and mental health issues are always difficult and sometimes terrifying to deal with. Sometimes these problems are related to views you may hold about yourself, entrenched interpersonal conflicts or current life situations you may be dealing with. Past traumas, or experiences within your nuclear family can all play an important role as well. Conflict in your current social or cultural environment, or family stresses and life transitions also contribute to emotional problems. Physical factors such as illness or aging, also have a profound impact on your mental health.

My vision for many years has been to create a safe environment for the bereaved where they can share and be supported in their grief. The gift of human connection is integral in moving through grief, yet so many people feel disconnected and adrift, unable to find anyone with whom they can freely express themselves without fear of judgment; someone who understands that simply getting up in the morning is sometimes enough of a victory for the day. Together we can share these conversations above a whisper.

I typically see clients with depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief, life transitions, relationship difficulties, psychosomatic disorders and insomnia. Many of my clients have tried traditional and pharmacologic approaches without satisfactory results.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

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