"My goal is to help patients achieve optimal life functioning and satisfaction in their relationship with themselves and others, at home, work and community. The path to self-knowledge is a wonderful journey that is a privilege to be a part of. I try to not be rigid in my approach, preferring to let the circumstances and reality of the patient inform our work together. My patients are not primarily seeking medication maintenance absent regular psychotherapy, and many are not in need or or requesting medications, though at times some medications may be useful in addition to therapy.

I encourage my clients to be open-minded in seeking improvement and multifaceted, multifactorial change. Healing, at its best, includes attention to all aspects of a client's personhood. Although biochemical imbalances can certainly be a driving force for why psychiatric treatment is sought, healing requires a thorough, comprehensive medical assessment of all factors relevant to each individual, highly unique patient.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Seattle Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

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.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Seattle, or mental health nurse practitioners, perform many of the same functions as a psychiatrist. 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.
