I am a Columbia and UCSF trained psychiatrist and psychotherapist working in Oakland. I believe psychotherapy helps individuals attain greater self-understanding, feel more fully alive, and develop stronger relationships. I utilize a variety of modalities, but with an emphasis on psychodynamic psychotherapy. This means we will explore your conscious and unconscious thoughts and motivations. Medication is also a tool that can be helpful, and I prescribe it where indicated, in collaboration with the goals and preferences of my patients.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

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