"Deep understanding of the nature and history of symptoms is frequently necessary to guide treatment and generate lasting improvements. Engaging in psychiatric care requires patience, a curious mind, and an honest desire to make changes. I provide psychiatric care with a psychodynamically-informed approach.

"Having trained as a psychiatrist, an art therapist, and a Jungian analyst, I approach each individual as unique. I focus on the value of that uniqueness and encourage the development of individual solutions to the problems and suffering that individuals bring into treatment. I view anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and problems in relationships as manifestations of unsuccessful attempts to adapt to both the outer world of collective demands and the inner world of one's own individual feelings and needs. Being healthy in the world means balancing the needs for individuality with needs to fit into the collective world."

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Virginia 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 Virginia has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Virginia child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Virginia). 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 (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

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