Unresolved emotional conflicts lie at the core of human suffering at times life can be unusually painful, scary and confusing. We may feel anxious, sad, discouraged and alone and not know what to do. Talking things out with someone can help us become clearer about who we are, our strengths and also our self-defeating ways so we can move forward with an improved sense of self and direction. As a Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I am an expert in clinical psychopharmacology and I treat all adult and pediatric disorders I see individuals from their early teens through middle age and beyond.

Problems with stress, anxiety, depression, substance abuse or mood instability often seem to come out of the blue. At other times they are tied to specific triggers. Life can be very hard and you may find yourself feeling unhappy wishing for things to change. You've taken the first step in making a change by looking for help. I worked in the Department of Psychiatry at UCONN Health practicing evidenced-based medicine for 28 years. I've worked with some of the leading psychiatrists in the area and have developed skills in diagnosing and treating many mental health issues. I am now in private practice.

I have been in the mental health field for over 30 years and am continually impressed by the strength of the human spirit. I am open minded and don't have any preconceptions about an individual or the problems they present with when I meet them at their first visit. Psychiatric services are more difficult to find than ever before while modern day stress has increased demand for quality services. I feel strongly that psychiatric assistance should be easier to find than it is. I also believe that people from all backgrounds, financial circumstances and with varied problems should have equal access to quality mental health care.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Manchester 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 Manchester has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Manchester child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Manchester). 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 Manchester, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have a MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Manchester Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
