"Am nationally board certified. Though I do prescribe psychiatric medications, I do it sparingly. The underlying cause of mental illness is often physiological in nature. I've found that supplementation, diet changes, life-style changes, and therapy can be effective in reducing or even alleviating the use of psychiatric medications in most individuals."

"With my background in osteopathic medicine, my approach to mental health is holistic. I believe that long-term psychotherapy leads to the greatest personal growth. Deeper personal work can be accomplished within a therapeutic relationship that feels safe, and thus, it is fundamentally important that I create such a space for my clients. My therapy approach is rooted in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Through this model, my goal is to help my clients gain insight into their own emotions, how they relate to others, and through a collaborative therapeutic process, be better able to work through issues such as anxiety, depression, and grief. With a holistic focus on the mind and body, adjunct treatment may include a focus on relaxation/meditation, nutrition, sleep, and life style practices. Psychiatric medications are not the focus of my practice. However, I can prescribe medications for those clients attending weekly or more frequent therapy if they are determined to be a helpful adjunct to treatment. "

Psychodynamic Psychiatrists
Psychodynamic therapy in Portland, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

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