"Most of our patients have several common characteristics, such as: 1) Conventional psychiatry has failed them and they want a doctor that thinks outside the box; 2) They are not in the midst of an urgent mental health crisis and can wait a few days or weeks to be seen; 3) They want more time with a mental health provider; 4) They're fairly stabilized and wanting to go deeper into healing their mental health issues; 5) They have residual symptoms after long term medication use; 6) They want to consider alternatives to medication; and 7) They don't depend on insurance to cover the cost of their mental health treatment."

"My goal as a psychiatrist is to provide education and tools to deal with issues that will inevitably arise. I encourage clients to participate in mindfulness exercises as awareness is the first step in understanding our patterns of behavior and coping strategies. Ultimately, individuals come to see me when these coping strategies have broken down. Both medication and therapy can be beneficial as one attempts to change their style of thinking and realize options. I believe that hope is lost when one feels a profound lack of options. For example, this is very common with depression as individuals thinking shades to the negative."

"Our mental health cannot be neatly separated from our physical bodies or from the unique events that have shaped us as individuals. While psychiatric medications have helped millions of individuals find relief from chronic mental illness and reclaim control of their lives, almost anyone who has struggled with depression or anxiety knows that medications alone are rarely enough to achieve the balanced, fulfilling lives that they desire. The question then becomes, “What else can be done?”"

Austin 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 Austin has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Austin child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Austin). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Austin Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have some basic training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
