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.

Cathexis is the investment energy into another form which can be a person, idea, or object. It’s a profound way of attachment to something usually greater than ourselves. When we cathect, we form more profound connections with others which comes from a place of authenticity and passion. Cathexis is a critical part of personal development and psychotherapy. For another to join your vision, elicit positive sustainable change, and dismantle limiting beliefs and emotions means connecting with people at a deep level. It is this synergistic effort of cathexis between provider AND client, which elicits positive change in a client's life.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Avon 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 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. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Avon Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.

How to find the right Psychiatrist?

If you're finding it difficult to find the right psychiatrist in Avon, don't worry--you're not alone. Psychiatrists are highly specialized professionals. They tend to be busy--appointments can be short (e.g. 15 mins.)--and so as a potential client you can sometimes feel lost or confused. Don't let this deter you.

Begin first by checking the psychiatrists listed here nearest to you. If they are limited in number, expand out your search geographically (Broaden your Search) and see who's available further afield. Use the links in the left nav bar to find the relevant insurance, if you intend to use your health insurance to pay for the provider.

If you're still finding it difficult to find a psychiatrist in Avon, call or contact the professionals here and ask for a psychiatric referral. You can also call the psychiatric nurses in Avon as they tend to be affiliated to a network of psychiatrists in their area ( Avon). Or just chat to them to see if they can help.
