Psychiatrists in Ypsilanti

“Most people, whether they have a psychiatric illness or not, need psychotherapy, at some point in their lives. I'm here to help determine what's wrong and how to best help. If a medicine is helpful, I'm trained to prescribe it. In most situations, medicine, alone, is not enough to help people disentangle themselves from the feelings, thoughts, or behaviors that have interfered with their functioning or caused such discomfort. Problematic patterns have developed over a long time, but for 'good reasons'. Until we know why, we're unlikely to change them.

RP Rajarethinam, Psychiatrist  in Ypsilanti
“I have over 20 years of experience working with people of all ages who struggle to find a solution for their anxiety, depression, mood and thinking disorders. Have you been working with a therapist who has recommended that medication could improve your symptoms? Maybe you have received a diagnosis that is best treated with medication. Medication is not for everyone or every diagnosis but when you work with an experienced psychiatrist you can learn what your options are so you can make an informed decision.
