I am a Duke University trained board certified psychiatrist in private practice psychiatry in Nashville, TN (Nashville Wellness Center). I provide psychotherapy and medication management for a broad variety of mental health issues including Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Spectrum Illnesses, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD), Attention Deficit Disorders (ADHD), Sleeping Disorders, Schizophrenia, Addiction, Personality Disorders and Dementia.
Every patient starts with an initial 60 minute evaluation where individual patient needs and treatment goals are established. After the initial evaluation, follow-up appointments are scheduled for 15 minute medication management only or 30-45 minute medication management plus psychotherapy, depending on individual patient needs. Also, with a signed ‘Release of Information’ form, I am happy to collaborate with your current primary care provider and/or therapist to ensure that your mental health treatment is seamless and complete.
I offer comprehensive psychiatric care in a climate where many patients are being reduced to tolerating very long waits and alarmingly brief visits. My goal is to reserve whatever time is necessary to return my patients to an optimal level of functioning in all aspects of their lives. I feel that every patient is unique and deserves an individualized treatment plan. At the Nashville Wellness Center, you are treated like a person, not a ‘unit of healthcare’. You will not be rushed through, instead you will be listened to and an appropriate level of treatment will be implemented. I use the biological-psychological-social-spiritual model in which all of these elements are taken into consideration when formulating the best treatment plan. Therapy can come in many forms which can include psychotherapy, counseling and medication management. As a Duke University trained psychiatrist I believe that every person deserves a full evaluation and treatment specific to that person.
