I believe it is important for us to work together at least weekly - allowing us to spend LESS time "catching up" and MORE time on deeper issues. We can talk about a wide range of challenges including depression, bipolar, anxiety, anger & guilt, and issues in relationships, school & work. I am a psychiatrist who believes in understanding each unique whole person - providing psychotherapy & medications as needed, and exploring other mind/body/spirit approaches as desired.

Reaching out to a doctor is something you've been considering for a while now. Irrational thoughts, overthinking, and anxiety have plagued you for some time. Before, you were able to push through and try to ignore it, but now it seems like your gut is telling you it's time to get some help. Feeling irritable, worried, and overwhelmed has taken its toll. It's getting harder to be patient with your kids and husband, and it's even harder to do well at work. Self-doubt feels like a constant companion. All that stuff about self-care? Yeah, right. All you feel capable of is hiding away, crying, and hoping your problems go away.

If your emotional states are a puzzle to you, if you feel you are overwhelmed with what you have to face, if you need to talk to someone about things that are hard for family and friends to understand or if you are taking medications that are not helping you prescribed by someone who doesn't really "get it" its worth a try to see if I can help. I've practiced and taught psychiatry at the University for 40 years. That should give you some confidence, enough confidence to risk our getting acquainted.

We are not born with the skills to handle life or our emotions. If we did not have people surrounding us as we grew who knew these skills and could teach us, then we did whatever we could to get through the emotion or situation we were faced with. This continued and evolved over time-maybe it changed into substance use, maybe into chronic dishonesty, or maybe we just tried to disappear into the background. Eventually these coping skills stopped working and we become desperate for the pain to stop. This is the perfect time a person can completely change their life and become who they were meant to be. THIS is the second chance!

Psychiatrist, MD
Verified
I am a licensed psychiatrist practicing psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and psychopharmacology. I believe psychotherapy is an important but frequently overlooked treatment for many mental health problems like depression and anxiety. Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis help people address emotional problems and internal conflicts in order to increase self-understanding and freedom. Professional advice about personal issues or emotional concerns can be invaluable in confronting seeming roadblocks that prevent a person from experiencing a sense of emotional freedom. I treat older adolescents and adults.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Lexington 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 Lexington 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 Lexington, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified.

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