I am very passionate about providing care to those suffering from symptoms of anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, depression, ADHD, insomnia, OCD, bipolar, and other mental disorders. It is important for me to listen to my patient and include their concerns and needs in the plan of care. I started my own business in order to be able to spend time getting to know my patients and not have someone dictating how much time I can spend with a patient. My goal is to assist my patients in ways to improve their mental wellbeing and have a more fulfilling life through medication management and a limited amount of counseling.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Knoxville 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 Knoxville 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 in Knoxville, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Knoxville Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
