About Dr. Olseth

 

Dr. Olseth is a Board-Certified psychiatrist who provides care in an empathetic, non-judgmental and warm manner. She offers individualized and effective treatment through compassionate, personal interaction, combined with clinical expertise. Dr Olseth provides all care in a strictly confidential environment.

She emphasizes a comprehensive assessment for an accurate diagnosis and precise treatment of various psychiatric illnesses, including Adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (Adult ADHD or ADD), mood and anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, attention disorders, insomnia, amongst other psychiatric illnesses. In addition to using her own expertise, Dr. Olseth regularly collaborates with an individual’s other physicians and therapists to provide for the best possible treatment outcomes through coordinating care.

At the time of the initial assessment, Dr. Olseth screens for medical conditions that may contribute to psychiatric symptoms. When needed, additional tests may be ordered. All recommendations are individualized to each person’s unique needs and defined in a treatment plan. Dr. Olseth discusses the treatment plan in detail with her patients. These recommendations may include medications, therapy or a combination of the two.

Medications are often necessary to treat psychiatric illnesses. Dr. Olseth takes care to recommend psychiatric medications and dosages that are most effective at specifically targeting the patient’s symptoms, without over-medicating her patients. Some patients are referred to Dr. Olseth to have her review psychiatric medications they already take. She has often recommended tapering psychiatric medications of patients referred to her. Her recommendations for psychiatric medications for patients, whether starting new medications or streamlining medications patients are currently on, provide successful management of psychiatric symptoms with minimal side effects.

I have developed a niche in treating business executives and other professionals who are experiencing emotional barriers in advancing their professional careers. I have successfully treated anxiety and anger issues, and other issues in executives. I have helped many professionals with become effective public speakers by helping them overcome public speaking anxiety so they can present themselves effectively.
