I have a wealth of of knowledge in many different areas of mental health With my knowledge as a certified nurse midwife and a psychiatric nurse practitioner I’m equipped to assist women who are suffering with anxiety and depression during pregnancy as well as postpartum.
If you are considering medications I can help with this decision. I personally know how badly mental health symptoms can feel. In 2010 I had a serious depressive episode; It so affected me that I changed my career path. The cause of mental illness is not yet fully understood, it is thought that both biology and stress can contribute to the development of mental illness symptoms. Medications can help reduce your biological predisposition (vulnerability) and treat your symptoms of mental illness. They can be powerful tools in your journey toward recovery.

Depression Psychiatrists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression psychiatrists in Minneapolis. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

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