Are you feeling tired, can't keep up with your daily routine, emotional for no reason, dealing with overwhelming stress? You may be struggling with untreated medical symptoms. These symptoms can be treated with the guidance of a physician. "Let's talk and see what happens." I hope to keep things as open as possible, because not every patient will present with a textbook case of issues. I strive to find a way to connect with each patient in a way that respects their autonomy and dignity.

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

West Hartford 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 West Hartford has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for West Hartford child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in West Hartford). 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 West Hartford, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have a MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years training to become certified.
