I especially enjoy working with patients that struggle with depression , bipolar disorder, anxiety, trauma, and psychosis.
My goal is to help my you thrive and become the most self-realized individual you can be. Often that entails at least some level of healing, whether physical, emotional, relational, or even spiritual, before we leverage awareness of the obstacles that stand in the way of living our fullest. My approach to psychiatry is to seamlessly blend medications and therapy so that you can truly live. While medications can be very helpful at times, I don't believe in a magic pill. It is important that you share with me your values and goals so we can also collaborate to find non-pharmacological approaches to helping you thrive.

I work with adults experiencing depression , anxiety, insomnia, panic, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, ASD, OCD, and PTSD through trauma-informed care.
I believe in collaborating with you, getting to know you as a whole person living in a complicated world and not just a diagnosis. Medications can help you as a part of your recovery from mental illness and behavioral health concerns. Meeting people where they are at and where they are comfortable is important to me. I bring with me over five years of experience as a psychiatric nurse practitioner in a variety of outpatient settings, prior to which I worked at Austin State Hospital as a registered nurse, and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children as a research coordinator.

Our mental health cannot be neatly separated from our physical bodies or from the unique events that have shaped us as individuals. While psychiatric medications have helped millions of individuals find relief from chronic mental illness and reclaim control of their lives, almost anyone who has struggled with depression or anxiety knows that medications alone are rarely enough to achieve the balanced, fulfilling lives that they desire. The question then becomes, “What else can be done?”

Depression Psychiatrists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression psychiatrists in Austin. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Austin 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 Austin 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.
