I treat adult patients who are dealing with a variety of psychiatric conditions. Everyone who comes to my office has a unique history and needs, and together we work out an individualized treatment plan. For some, our sessions are primarily focused on psychotherapy, problem solving and encouraging healthy lifestyle changes. For others, we focus more on medication management. Regardless of the approach, the goal is to reduce suffering and improve functioning so that people are better able to lead their lives.

Life is a journey which may be complicated by multiple issues. These include strained relationships, divorces, drug abuse, self harm behaviors, and losses. Traumas can result in low self-esteem, fear of intimacy, PTSD and chronic depression. Persistent traumas can result in negative core beliefs such as "I don't belong or deserve". These beliefs can lead to behaviors that sabotage attempts to live fulfilling lives. We are all writing our life story or narrative. Supportive guides can help us navigate through our journey. I consider myself a guest in your life's narrative and feel privileged to join you.

Most problems have a solution, most illnesses are treatable. Change begins with a first step toward doing things differently than you have done them before. I believe the purpose of therapy is ultimately not to be in therapy and to aquire new skills to support positive change. I am not a therapist who will sit back quietly, nod and give you an occassional 'Uh-huh'. I have Master's degrees in both Counseling and Nursing. I work in the ER at Harborview, at my office practice and with the psychiatric needs of older adults.

It takes a lot of trust to disclose that which affects us most intimately. While we have made strides over the years in mental health, stigma continues to have a stronghold in today's society, and it can be difficult to take that first step. I approach every new patient as a unique individual to better provide you with personalized care. This can include genetic testing, correcting nutritional deficiencies, the recommendation of supplements and lifestyle change, brief supportive therapy, psychotropic medication, and specialty referral when necessary. I work mainly with those with ADHD, anxiety, depression, trauma and PMDD.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Seattle 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 Seattle has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Seattle child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Seattle). 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 Seattle, 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. Seattle Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
