Howard and Barbara Belkin, M.D., Psychiatrist  in Birmingham
“We are pleased to introduce our office for the practice of psychiatry, counseling, and therapy for adults, adolescents, and children. We are conveniently located in Birmingham with on-site parking with convenient office hours. For patients, one of the most important factors in trying to find a psychiatrist, psychologist, counselor, or therapist is that we provide the highest quality of service. Patient needs are foremost in treatment. Our treatment and patient selection is based in psychotherapy. Medication may be prescribed as needed, but is not a focus of the practice.

“Although I wish you were not in a position to need/want my services, I am glad to be able to provide them if necessary. After more than 20 years of practicing as a psychiatrist and over 15 as a psychoanalyst, we should be able to deal with your serious concerns in confidence. I understand that most in need of intensive psychodynamic/psychoanalytic treatment have active lives, something that will be taken into account. Thanks to all those at Psychology Today for offering me this service, a way to get in touch with as many people as possible.

Steven Nickoloff, Psychiatrist  in Birmingham
“I work with adults and adolescents with a wide variety of emotional problems. Typically this may manifest in difficulties in relationships or professional performance, or in symptoms such as anxiety and depression. Ideally they would have a curiosity about themselves, a willingness to explore and understand their emotional world more fully in psychotherapy. They would understand that this type of growing awareness can facilitate profound changes in their behavior, relationships and symptoms.

Michael D Colman, Psychiatrist  in Birmingham
“As a psychiatrist, child/adolescent psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst, my viewpoint is that emotional disturbances have as their basis the way a person thinks. In treatment situations, I attempt to elaborate and elucidate the way a person thinks in order to help that person see the connections between their thinking and behavior, and what troubles that person. The symptoms which a person presents with help to lead us in the direction of discovering what the underlying problem is. It is a truism that one needs to know a problem is present in order to be able to do something about it.

Robert Pohl, Psychiatrist  in Birmingham
“I believe in evidence-based treatment of depression and anxiety disorders as well as other conditions, such as bulimia and attention deficit disorder and alcohol abuse. As a physician, I prescribe medications for these conditions when it is appropriate. I do believe in prescribing medications for clinically significant conditions, but not for normal reactions to life's situational events. I work with a large number of therapists who refer their patients for medication management, and refer patients for therapy when it is indicated.

Psychiatric Nurse, CNS, APRN, BC
“Imagine what your life would be like if you could respond to situations appropriately instead of reacting! You being in charge of your emotional state is only one of the benefits from our therapy work together. Whether you have a specific problem you need help with or a more complex emotional issue, we work together to find therapeutic solutions that are best for you. If you also need medications, appropriate referral can be made.

“I have had many years of experience helping people who have patterns of self-defeating behavior which they are unable to change. I also work with people who're depressed or who suffer with overwhelming anxiety attacks. My approach is psychodynamic and I prescribe medications when it is appropriate to do so. I believe that I am sensitive and empathic and I have learned that the relationship is an important part of the treatment

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Birmingham Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Birmingham specialize in age groups (so check for Birmingham child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Birmingham). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurses in Birmingham, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Birmingham Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior. Importantly, they are trained to administer psychiatric medication (or 'psychiatric meds') and, in very limited ways, to prescribe meds.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on meds so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
