I partner with my patients because I believe the best healthcare decisions are made when both provider and patient work together. Reach out to me if you are looking for a voice in your own healthcare, looking for someone who thoroughly understands medications and wants to be listened to very carefully. Contact me if you need someone who understands your anxiety and depression and is willing to comprehend your unique situation. Perhaps you are looking to make a change but don't know how to make the first step. Or perhaps you are tired of feeling a certain way but don't know how to articulate your feelings. Reach out!

In addition to general psychiatric evaluation and management, we employ IV NAD+ for safe outpatient detoxification from alcohol, opioids, and other drugs. Because of its natural healing effects, NAD+ is also used to optimize health, mental and physical, and therefore treats other neurodegenerative disorders.

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