I have worked with adults and seniors in both outpatient and acute care settings.
Thank you for your consideration as your next provider. I appreciate that it is difficult to find the right fit for your mental health concerns. One of the main concerns I have heard over the years is that patients do not feel heard when they reach out for help. I have carried this with me throughout my career. I spend the time to truly listen and understand your concerns. I work with you to identify a treatment plan you are comfortable with. The outcomes are better if you trust your provider and you work together to achieve remission.

Psychiatrist, MD
Verified
I am the only physician fully trained and Board Certified in both Psychiatry and Neurosurgery. I think that it is important for a physician to understand that each human person is unique and the result of a melding of Brain, Mind, and Spirit. I see patients that have primary Psychiatric disease and those with neurological disease manifesting psychiatric symptoms. Patients that have a neurological disease with psychiatric symptoms need to be treated with full understanding of what brain areas will and will NOT respond to various medications. My practice employs both medication management and Neurologically informed psychotherapy.

Accepting new adult patients (18+). Both VIRTUAL and IN PERSON visits available. Request a new patient appointment online at www.AmyWaltonMD.com. I have been a board certified psychiatrist in Austin since 2007. After 13 years treating people in crisis at Seton Shoal Creek Hospital, I am acutely aware that the lack of mental health providers in Central Texas contributes in unnecessary delays in receiving high quality mental health treatment and can lead to psychiatric crisis and hospitalization. I opened my private practice to help bridge that gap.
