Video Game Addiction Psychiatrists in North Carolina (NC)
“Sometimes, our best efforts leave us feeling stalled. Personal initiative and the energy that we apply to serious challenges will fall short of relieving true worry, anxiety, depressed mood, fatigue, insomnia, and other symptoms. At the root of it all may simply be that what had been working fails us now. The medical specialty of psychiatry emerges as an essential ally when treatment options come from a thorough evaluation in concert with your primary care physician, psychologist, therapist, alternative medical practitioner, or trainer for an integrated treatment plan. As a psychiatrist, my goal is your sustained, long-term health.
“My Integrative Psychiatry practice in Carrboro, North Carolina offers psychotherapy and a holistic approach that blends traditional psychiatry with complementary modalities. With a background in the arts, psychoanalysis, and Zen teachings, and training in nutrition and mind-body medicine, I offer dynamic psychotherapy and combine a nutritional approach with conventional medications. I enjoy working with issues across the life span and have particular expertise in the developmental transition to adulthood during college.
“I am a friendly, open and nurturing psychiatrist practicing in a comfortable, polished office space near Duke. I am board certified in General Psychiatry as well as Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and treat a wide variety of disorders in people of all ages. I provide comprehensive evaluations, pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. I also provide medication management for individuals who currently have a therapist, and will communicate regularly with that therapist to provide the most comprehensive, individualized care possible.

I look forward to hearing from you!
“Dr. Eric Morse was Board Certified in General Psychiatry in 2003 and Addiction Psychiatry in 2004. Dr. Morse helps people recover from many addictions and mental illnesses.

“Is your life a struggle? Are your relationships not going the way you want? Give yourself a minute right now and take a deep breath. Good! Now, imagine that your life and your relationships are just the way you want. What needs to change so you get the life and love you want? Next, open yourself up to the belief that you have everything you need to create the life and love you want, you just aren't aware of it yet. Finally, gather support for yourself and prepare for an exciting journey of self discovery.
“My practice focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of children, adolescents and adults who deal with problems including anxiety and mood disorders, ADHD and other behavior or emotional problems that affect the quality of life and healthy development of indivduals. I see patients using a combination of medication and psychotherapy as well as medication management alone in conjunction with other therapists. I am board certified in both adult and child/adolesent psychiatry. I practiced Internal Medicine and was board certified in general internal medicine prior to training in psychiatry.
“I am a board-certified adult psychiatrist who treats adults with dementia, attention deficit, anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems. I also have a doctorate in neurophysiology and have done extensive research on attention, memory and depression. I trained in New York City for 12 years and relocated to North Carolina in 2008. My training at NYU and Mt Sinai was excellent and I was exposed to a wide variety of people and problems, but the pace became draining. I moved in search of a more balanced lifestyle, where I would be able to give more personalized attention to my patients, family, and friends.
“I've been practicing psychiatry for over 30 years and have a great deal of experience. With that experience, and my own maturing process, I know much about who I am as a person and a psychiatrist. This allows me to settle in more deeply with my clients. I am often told that I am a less traditional psychiatrist than most because of my willingness to offer psychotherapy along with medication, if needed. Although, I am well skilled in the area of psychopharmacology and use medications when indicated, my primary interest and passion is psychotherapy; individual, couple's and group.
“We specialize in the treatment of addictions, and general psychiatric problems such as depression and anxiety. We use advanced approaches to treatment such as Suboxone. We work best with patients who are serious about their treatment and actively collaborate with us in their treatment planning. Our patients are humans not merely a collection of symptoms, and we don't hesitate to refer them to counseling to deal with their complexity. Read more about us at www.wfpanc.com

“Dr. Peterson is a Board Certified psychiatrist in private practice. He uses integrative psychotherapy approaches to promote focused, deep emotional resolution in which reconsolidation of memory is considered the neurobiological mechanism of change. His trauma-informed treatment frame involves a developmental perspective. Overwhelming triggering experiences in the present can be addressed through developing self-soothing skills and by undermining the early foundations of currently disturbing responses. Psychodynamic approaches are supported by EMDR Therapy, Somatic Experiencing Therapy, energy psychotherapies and mindfulness methods. Balancing, centering, and calming exercises are taught during the beginning sessions and throughout therapy.
“I became a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner as a second career choice. I had spent a decade working in various social service agencies such as medicaid and child protective services, and I had seen a lot of human suffering. Each person experiencing suffering wanted and needed someone to fully listen and to understand their unique experience; someone who could offer them hope that a means to suffer less was possible. I do what I do because each day I encounter extraordinary human beings who prove that "possible" is always possible.
“Are you personally feeling stuck? Have you experienced a major loss or change that is challenging your previous sense of balance? As a couple, are you having a hard time hearing each other or even wondering whether you can stay together? Are you ready to make the commitment to spend the time, energy, and money needed to work in therapy to make the changes that you desire? Give me a call and let's talk about what you're experiencing, what you're needing, and how we might work together to help you meet your goals.
“I will listen to your concerns and explain what treatment I think will be helpful. We will consider the impact of stress in your life, the challenges of growth into new phases of life, and also stumbling blocks in your ability to cope with life. A private confidential relationship allows you to explore your difficulties. My focus is on a thoughtful exploration of what is leading to your symptoms and clarifying changes you can make. Sometimes medication can be a useful adjunct to relieve symptoms that are incapacitating thereby freeing you to explore the origins of those symptoms.
“If you suffer from depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, trauma, self-esteem problems, relationship issues, or stress management difficulties, I can help. PLEASE CONTACT ME BY PHONE (NOT E-MAIL) AT (919)493-0406. Offering both psychotherapy and medication management, I can provide all aspects of mental health care for most individuals. I help my patients learn to release shame and self-criticism so they can lead happier lives. I also see some clients of psychotherapists whom I trust for medication management. Together, we pick the approach that fits your needs and your time frame.
“I am a Harvard-trained, Board certified psychiatrist, with expertise in treating children, adolescents, and adults. I see my patients in a comfy, private office, located steps from the Duke campus. My patients tell me I'm a warm and caring guy, truly dedicated to helping them in any way I can. I treat a wide spectrum of psychiatric problems, including ADHD, depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder, OCD, autism spectrum disorders, psychosis, eating disorders, and substance abuse. I also help people in dealing with challenging life circumstances, such as loss and grief, relationship troubles, difficulties with work or school, illness, divorce, or other life transitions.
“I am a psychiatrist with an interest in providing psychotherapy (either with or without medications as appropriate), which is increasingly rare these days. My approach varies subtly with each patient, but is based on recognized cognitive, dynamic, and interpersonal practices. Medications may usefully help with symptoms, but I believe that psychotherapy provides a therapeutic space, and a meaningful relationship with a therapist, within which self-knowledge, accountability, and awareness of personal possibility develop.
