“I have 37 years of patient practice in academic psychiatry, combining pharmacology and psychotherapy.. I have always tried to remain a "general practitioner" with competencies, employed as the latest literature on medication and psychotherapy suggest. I am reluctant to "give up.". At a University Psychiatry Department has afforded me opportunities to help where others have been unable to do so. If you are willing to "hang in there," so am I. Only those 18yo and older. No drug or alcohol treatment. If it looks like I can't help you, I will try my best to find someone who can.

“I offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment for individuals with complex psychiatric and neuropsychiatric conditions. My practice includes the use of medication when necessary while avoiding the use of complicated medication regimens that is all too prevalent in psychiatry today. We schedule a limited number of patients each day to ensure enough time is available for education on the nature and course of the condition, available treatment options and alternative dietary and lifestyle changes that have been associated with improved outcomes. I provide an evidenced-based approach that keeps the patient in the center of each decision made.

Lynn Jacobson, Psychiatrist  in Lexington
“I am a licensed psychiatrist practicing in Lexington, KY. My goal in helping individuals is to first be familiar with their story, and then to use therapeutic or pharmacological techniques to help them feel unstuck in their lives. I tend to use fewer medications rather than more and take great pleasure when my patients understand themselves more fully, as understanding is oftentimes a powerful medicine that makes lasting change possible.
