Psychiatrists in Westport

Jonathan M Horowitz, Psychiatrist  in Westport
“I provide a caring, supportive therapeutic environment that provides a safe place for an individual or couple to explore and resolve feelings, problems and concerns. Today many psychiatrists only prescribe medications. Unlike them I provide both the necessary psychotherapy and when indicated the appropriate medications. My therapy focuses on emotional, interpersonal and career issues. The unique combination of my psyochoanalytic training, experience as a a CEO, and my work teaching "leadership", allows me to understand and assist an individual in addressing psychological or interpersonnel challenges in their personnel, marital, and/or professional life. I provide an active, and responsive approach to therapy, coaching, and counseling.

Vatsal G. Thakkar, Psychiatrist  in Westport
“I like to get to know my patients inside-out from a personal, social, biological, and psychological level.

I have acquired thousands of hours of experience working with patients in each of these specialties: depression, adult ADHD, addictions, and sleep disorders. Everyone I see gets a comprehensive evaluation (including bloodwork) and recommendations, whether they be for therapy, supplements, medications, other specialists, or lifestyle interventions.

“As I have grown and developed during the thirty five years I have practiced psychiatry I feel the need to define myself and my interests more specifically. External forces are working to limit the Psychiatrists' role to medication prescriber. I certainly do some of this as the goal of symptom alleviation is an important one. What appeals most to me, however, is to work with individuals to achieve a more fundamental shift. Growth at a deeper level. Consequently, I have consolidated medication and talk therapy "under one roof." This provides efficiency and power difficult to achieve with split therapy.

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

Some psychiatric practitioners in Westport specialize in age groups (so check for Westport child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Westport). 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 Westport, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress.
