I am here to do right by my patients, first and foremost. I use a collaborative approach and address the patient as a whole so we can come up with a plan together. I come from a family of physicians over multiple generations and I am one of several psychiatrists. I was born and raised in Colorado. I grew up speaking multiple languages. I find myself at home in the south as much as I do in the west. I find that my patients want someone not only to hear them out, but also to help them find solutions. My goal is to help my patients achieve symptom resolution, an improvement in the quality of life and the attainment of their goals.

TMS or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is an ideal treatment for chronic depression. Most insurance now covers this groundbreaking treatment for those who have tried at lease 3 different antidepressant medications and a course of psychotherapy. This treatment involves daily 20 minute sessions for a course of 5-6 weeks. 80% of those treated will have significant benefit and about 40% achieve remission of their depressive symptoms. Since this treatment is a non-systemic treatment, it does not have the range of side effects that medication can and the most common side effect is a mild headache during the first few treatments.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Nashville 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 Nashville 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 Nashville, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified.
