I spent two decades as a psychiatrist in a psychiatric emergency room, and my heart always went out to all of the people who I saw who I thought were misdiagnosed and improperly treated. I hope to help change that now that I have moved into providing individual treatment. I am not a psychiatrist who just wants to see you just to repeatedly write unending prescriptions, either. More than anything, I want to just UNDERSTAND who you are and what you need. If we can achieve THAT, then I promise that I will do my best to help you get the BEST treatment for your condition and your situation.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 15206, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 15206 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in 15206 is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

15206 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 15206 has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for 15206 child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in 15206). 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 15206, 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. 15206 Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
