"My practice is oriented towards long-term insight-oriented psychotherapy with children, adolescents, and adults, sometimes including medication management as part of an overall treatment plan. I seek to provide non-critical, empathic, and respectful listening which will enable my patients to feel safe as we explore together the sources of their distress. As a person achieves greater self-understanding, greater self-acceptance and compassion towards oneself becomes possible, and this helps relieve suffering and affords greater personal freedom to become one's authentic self."

Sleep or Insomnia Psychiatrists
What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in Seattle from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioral techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing. But Sleep specialists in Seattle or psychiatrists who specialize in sleep in Seattle, or simply a Seattle sleep psychiatrist, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in Seattle or psychiatrists who specialize in insomnia in Seattle, or simply a Seattle insomnia psychiatrist, can help.

Sleep disorders may include sleep apnea, narcolepsy or simply chronic snoring.

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.
