"I am a licensed psychiatrist with a particular interest in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The minds and characters of people are infinitely varied and complex. This creates subtle but vital differences in the way that any two people manifest problematic thoughts, emotions, or behaviors. Consequently, I believe that effective treatment requires a genuine understanding and appreciation of the person seeking assistance, not just rout knowledge of the symptoms for which he or she seeks help. Psychotherapy aims to deepen an individual's self-awareness. Greater insight can decrease painful symptoms, resolve problematic patterns of behavior, and cultivate meaning in life."

Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Seattle specialize in age groups (so check for Seattle child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Seattle). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

This includes diagnosing mental illness and prescribing medication. Seattle Psychiatric nurse practitioners also act as a therapist, helping patients with depression, anxiety and suicidal individuals, as well as other conditions that can be remedied with counseling.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on medications so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
