Having trained in rural Columbia, SC, and also the urban cities of Chicago and Atlanta, I’ve had the pleasure of working with patients of all ages, races, religious, socioeconomic, and educational backgrounds. My general psychiatry training was heavily focused on cultural competency and being educated about different cultural aspects in treatment, and I was a PGY-2 course on multicultural issues affecting African-American patients. Now, in private practice as a Christian psychiatrist who incorporates Biblical principles in to the treatment process, I have the privilege of working with Christians of all ages and backgrounds who are struggling with various psychiatric disorders.
