Psychiatrist Louisville

At UofL Physicians - Psychiatry, we believe that good mental health is essential to a high quality of life. Mental health impacts the ability to enjoy life, deal with challenges and difficult life events and experience positive and meaningful connections with other people. Good mental health is integral to overall health and helps us achieve balance in all aspects of our lives – social, physical, spiritual and emotional. We can all improve our mental health in the same way that we can our physical health. Our Louisville psychiatrists believe that everyone can practice good mental-health habits through developing improved coping strategies.

UofL Physicians - Psychiatry, formerly known as University Psychiatric Foundation, is a full-service mental health practice. This respected group of physicians and therapists provides complete life-cycle services, from infancy to the elderly. The practice includes psychiatrists, psychologists,  psychiatric social workers and addiction counselors. UofL Physicians-Psychiatry serves thousands of patients each year all over the Louisville region.

The providers of the UofL Physicians - Psychiatry practice include national leaders in diagnosis and treatment in all areas of psychiatry. Subspecialties include: women’s mental health, memory disorders, geriatric psychiatry (including Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias as well as mood disorders in the elderly), anxiety disorders, addiction disorders, depression and bipolar disorder. The UofL Physicians-Depression Center, based in the UofL Physicians - Psychiatry offices, is a charter member of the National Network of Depression Centers.

The practice offers several innovative treatments, including somatic therapies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS is the newest somatic treatment for depression, for those patients who do not respond to traditional methods. The treatment uses a focused magnetic field that promotes changes in brain function in order to improve the symptoms of depression. There are very few side effects of TMS treatment, which is delivered in the Louisville psychiatrist outpatient offices.  We are the first in Kentucky to offer this treatment.
