It takes a lot of trust to disclose that which affects us most intimately. While we have made strides over the years in mental health, stigma continues to have a stronghold in today's society, and it can be difficult to take that first step. I approach every new patient as a unique individual to better provide you with personalized care. This can include genetic testing, correcting nutritional deficiencies, the recommendation of supplements and lifestyle change, brief supportive therapy, psychotropic medication, and specialty referral when necessary. I work mainly with those with ADHD, anxiety, depression, trauma and PMDD.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

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