Psychiatrist, MD, FAPA
For me, the most satisfying part of practicing psychiatry is that each day I have the opportunity to interact with patients and help them improve their mental health and lives. Over my 23 years of private practice in Atlanta, I have seen firsthand that good psychiatric care, often in conjunction with targeted psychotherapy, can be transformative to a patient's health and well being. I enjoy getting to know my patients personally, because each individual has unique biology, life circumstances, and goals for themselves.

EMDR Psychiatrists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Atlanta 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 Atlanta has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.
