Psychiatrists in Fayette County

Michelle Schofield, Psychiatrist  in Peachtree City
“I apply a psychodynamic approach to evaluating, diagnosing, and treating various psychiatric conditions and addictive disorders. In addition to maintaining a private practice, I enjoy my role as a moderator, professional seminar facilitator, and consultant. I believe that individuals learn in a myriad of manners including one-on-one and face- to- face interactions, auditory stimulation, visual stimulation and from a cohesive group setting. Thus,I treat patients in an individual setting as well as in a more public forum such as workshops. These seminars and workshops highlight various concepts that can contribute to an overall improved mental well being.
