"I treat patients who are experiencing distressing symptoms due to problems with their mood, difficulty thinking, poor concentration and difficulty focusing, or may be having problems in their personal relationships or occupational functioning. People who initially are less concerned with how a problem arose than with the current factors sustaining the problem and what is preventing them from trying to change it. People who want to learn coping techniques and problem-solving skills that can help them regain a sense of control in their life. Later in treatment, people may want to identify and understand the behavior, emotions, and ideas that contribute to their problems."

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Washington 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 Washington has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Washington child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Washington). 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 (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Washington, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have a MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Washington Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
