MEET KJ COTTRELL

“I am a board certified general psychiatrist, with specialty training in child and adolescent psychiatry.”

Years of working with underserved and disenfranchised populations has given me a profound respect for the human capacity to heal, to transcend obstacles, and to flourish.

My style is exploratory, intuitive and practical, but above all, collaborative. I believe that effective therapy doesn’t belong to a particular school or genre, but instead stems from the trusting therapeutic relationship between clinician and patient.

When the clinical experience feels genuine and personal, you will invest more in your own healing, and achieve a more deeply rooted recovery.

As a physician, my approach to health and wellness is inclusive of developmental, environmental and behavioral contributions. I sometimes recommend medications, but my strategy will always be to find the lowest and safest effective dose.

I welcome patients from all walks of life, including LGBTQ patients as well as patients from diverse cultural backgrounds, and those in non-traditional relationships.
