"My goal is to help patients achieve optimal life functioning and satisfaction in their relationship with themselves and others, at home, work and community. I am flexible in my approach, preferring to let the circumstances and reality of the patient inform our work together. My patients are not primarily seeking medication maintenance absent regular psychotherapy, and many are not in need of or requesting medications. At times some medications may be useful in addition to therapy. As founder and CEO of a mid-size company that I sold in 2018, I welcome staff, managers and executives with personal, family or work challenges."

"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."

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 few years training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose some mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Seattle Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have some basic training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
