I would love to meet you! My ideal patient wants help from a highly competent and caring specialist who is really good at BOTH psychiatry and psychotherapy. My ideal patient is going to ask questions and they can have anywhere between no questions to a lot of questions. I'm always glad to fill in with information when patients may feel like don't know what to ask. Mental wellness is a journey and consider me and my team a part of your treatment team! My ideal patient wants to converse with me, back and forth, about a well thought-out and comprehensive treatment plan for their problems/concerns.

Teletherapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Texas, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Texas listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Texas 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 Texas has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. 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 , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Texas Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
