I use talk therapy and, when necessary, medications, to help people get to a place in which they can listen to their own voice, and use their own strengths, to cope with life's challenges, to establish a meaningful vision for their life, and to carry it out. I help people with depression, anxiety, relationship issues , and career difficulties.

Some of the issues and conditions I address and treat include the following: depression and anxiety, relationship and interpersonal difficulties, work and career concerns, low self-esteem, attention and concentration difficulties, bipolar disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder.
I am a psychiatrist and psychotherapist who treats adults and older adolescents with a wide range of psychological difficulties. My treatment approach stems from both my medical/psychiatric background and my extensive training in insight-oriented psychotherapy. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to the individual needs of each of my patients. I work with patients to help them better understand the nature of the difficulties they have been facing, and identify and make lasting progress towards their personal goals.

I have an adult practice for persons over the age of 18. If you are seeking therapy, you are interested in improving your life in the areas of relationships, communications and any other areas causing emotional discomfort or pain such as: work, marital or couple issues, parenting differences, losses, life phase adaptations, body image and decision making. Effectiveness of therapy depends on your active participation. It requires time, effort and regularity. Therapy involves evaluating your thoughts and behaviors, identifying stresses and working to modify both. The therapy relationship is a collaborative effort with strict confidentiality and respect for the client.

Perhaps a relationship or a job or parenting isn’t going well, or you just feel bad (or angry, or frightened). I try to be of use to people who are in pain. How do I try to help? By having open and honest conversations, good talks. It’s not so easy to do that – we keep our guards up for compelling reasons, because of our experiences of being hurt and used and misunderstood in the past. Often it seems obvious what we need to do, and yet impossible to do it. In therapy we wrestle with the bind.

In therapy, a new relationship forms - the therapeutic relationship .
"No man is an island...", John Donne wrote. No woman, either. From birth, we depend upon relationships to give life meaning. But life sometimes leaves us feeling alone with our troubles. We may feel misunderstood, sad, worried, scared or angry. We may struggle with our direction, fall short of our hopes, suffer a loss. Yet our social connections are at the core of our humanity. That is why I believe talking can help to relieve suffering and create new directions. I strive to help by listening carefully and reflecting with you to better understand obstacles to a more fulfilling life.

I am a psychiatrist specializing in therapy and medication management for adults and late adolescents. My practice provides the time for an in-depth assessment of a patient's needs and the formulation of a detailed treatment plan. The initial assessment usually takes two meetings and forms the foundation for an ongoing therapeutic relationship . I primarily utilize psychodynamic approaches, within a holistic framework that considers diet, exercise, and work-life balance. I provide treatment in a warm, compassionate, and accepting environment.

My philosophy of practice is that it is not the approach one takes that matters in therapy, but the relationship between the therapist and person seeking therapy that is pivotal to the outcome, thus I strive to build and develop the therapeutic relationship .
Whether you are faced with a current challenge or trying to untangle a web of complicated issues from the past, we can work together to co-create a more meaningful life. I am a nurse psychotherapist in private practice in a residential setting with the option to work out of doors in a private garden area. I am eclectic in my approach, incorporating different modes of therapy designed to address the child, adolescent, couple, adult or family's issues and concerns. Since each person I see is unique in terms of what they are seeking in therapy, my approach is tailored to what that person presents.

I am a psychiatrist who firmly believes that compassionate and faithful exploration of one’s inner world is the process through which wounds may finally heal. I am humbled to accompany you on this journey. Humanities and ethics have informed my work as a psychodynamic psychotherapist exploring the depths of another person’s inner world. I also have experience and interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine. I simultaneously draw upon medical, neurological, psychological and psychiatric perspectives to provide an integrated vision of the way that suffering manifests itself as physical, mental and spiritual distress.

As a couples therapist, I aim to help you and your partner gain insight from your past family and relationship history to increase connection with each other.
I've been an osteopathic psychiatrist for over 27 years. Trained as both a psychotherapist and psychopharmacologist, I use a combined approach to symptoms—often talk therapy, and medication, when needed. As an osteopathic doctor, I look at you as a whole person. Not only the psychiatric issues, but environmental, social, or underlying medical disease. I'm also more attuned to side effects of medication and how medication may actually be causing the problem. My therapy approach is a combination of insight-based (cognitive) and emotion-based (learning emotional awareness and acceptance of your body’s full range of sensations).

Overwhelmed? Frustrated with people in your life? Trouble at school, work or home? Change can happen. I see adolescents, adults and couples. I'm direct, open, collaborative. My style is eclectic, practical and problem-solving. I prescribe anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications when indicated. Psychotherapy is a two-way street. It begins with a consultation, when together we clarify what's troubling you. During that first encounter, we road-test our compatibility as communicators and collaborators. In psycho-therapy, "one size" does not fit all. You should meet more than one clinician before deciding whom to work with.

Relationship Issues Psychiatrists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Washington relationship psychiatrist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Washington.

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