Are you a parent looking for someone who can help your child or teen when you know they could be doing better in school or socially? I am a psychiatric APRN who specializes in treating children and adolescents (through 17 years-of-age) who are experiencing depression, anxiety, ADHD and symptoms from autism or trauma. My approach is conservative, using the lowest effective dose of psychotropic medication, avoiding multiple meds, while also considering whether medical conditions or learning issues may be affecting progress. As indicated, I interface with parents, schools, therapists and the PCP to ensure medications are effective.

Problems with stress, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, or mood instability often seem to come out of the blue. At other times they are tied to specific triggers. Life can be very hard and you may find yourself feeling unhappy wishing for things to change. You've taken the first step in making a change by looking for help. I worked in the Department of Psychiatry at UCONN Health practicing evidence-based medicine for 28 years. I've worked with some of the leading psychiatrists in the area and have developed skills in diagnosing and treating many mental health issues.

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

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 Avon 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 Avon, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified.
