Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatry for those in Cedar Park, Leander, Round Rock, Austin, Georgetown, and surrounding areas.
Just as a cough in family practice might mean anything from asthma to pneumonia, psychiatric symptoms can have varying causes. A thorough evaluation informs the most effective treatment. Dr. Calvin offers assessments for primary care physicians, for consultation, or as an initial step to longer term treatment.
Understanding problems through therapy can give you more control to guide your life in the directions you want it to go. Dr. Calvin uses elements from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy to assist individuals in reaching their treatment goals.
Medications can also be helpful, particularly if symptoms have begun to significantly impair functioning or if you or your child seem stuck despite attempts at lifestyle modification and therapy. Dr. Calvin can help you determine if, and how, medications might be a part of an optimized treatment plan for you.
Dr. Calvin treats a broad range of psychiatric illnesses for children, adolescents, and adults. She has a special interest in anxiety disorders (including Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder), mood disorders (including Major Depressive Disorder and Bipolar Disorder), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and pregnancy-related difficulties. She sees adults, children, adolescents and families.
Dr. Calvin additionally offers medication management and therapy services specifically for physicians and health-care providers. She notes "I attended competative programs for medical school, residency and fellowship. Training can be grueling, and life after training, trying to balance family, career, caring for others, debt, and functioning in health care systems can also be incredibly difficult. I believe we must care for ourselves to be able to care for others. To this end, I offer services that specifically target physician and health-care provider burn-out and other associated difficulties."
