Depression in Austin, TX

Depression is a mental health issue that affects countless individuals. A person living with depression (also known as major depressive disorder, or MDD) may feel sad, hopeless, or "drained," even though they aren't sure why. They might also notice a sudden loss of interest in eating or the hobbies they would normally enjoy. Depression can stem from a variety of factors, including trauma, chronic stress, or chemical imbalances in the brain. If you believe you or a loved one are suffering from symptoms of depression, we encourage you to call Mynd Works Psychiatry to arrange a mental health assessment and start a precise and personalized treatment program. Whether you're seeking in-person psychiatric care at our Austin, TX office or working with our team via telehealth, our team is committed to helping you elevate your quality of life with state-of-the-art mental health treatments. Get started by contacting our practice today.

Your treatment will begin with a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, which can be done in person in Austin, TX or via telehealth. During your appointment, we'll focus on you as an individual. We will discuss your symptoms, previous medications, family history, and more. Depending on which of our packages you choose, we may also perform a brain wave analysis to evaluate how your brain is functioning. We will also perform two genetics tests. GeneSight looks at gene-drug interactions, helping with dosing and preventing side effects. MaxGen Labs offers a test called "The Works," which provides integrative data about overall wellness and health. It offers a comprehensive report and insights on your food and dietary sensitivities, fitness, bodily functions, and mental health genetics, testing 180 gene variants. To help you get well as fast as possible, we will bring all of this information together to create a precise personalized treatment plan designed just for you.

At Mynd Works Psychiatry, we understand that no two patients are quite alike when it comes to their mental health and brain chemistry. Our practice offers a state-of-the-art approach that combines two types of genetic testing to provide a deeper look at you as an individual. We also offer Elite concierge packages, which include on-demand care, same or next-day appointments, direct access to your provider via email or cell phone, and more. Contact our practice to learn more about the Mynd Works Way and the different packages we offer to support your mental health journey.

It can be easy to miss the signs of depression or dismiss them as "feeling blue." The reality is that depression can have a significant impact on your life by interfering with your habits and thought patterns. Some of the symptoms of depression include:

  • Frequent feelings of fatigue
  • Always feeling sad or disengaged
  • Changes in appetite
  • Loss of interest in your usual activities
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Thoughts of death, self-harm, or suicide
  • Feelings of hopelessness

These are only a few of the more common symptoms that have been linked with depression. If you have noticed a decline in your enjoyment of life or simply feel that things are "off," we urge you to contact Mynd Works Psychiatry for a diagnosis and treatment.

Kathie is amazing. She has changed my world. It is so validating to have a brain map that shows me I don't have a character flaw, that I have a brain based disorder, that should be treated like any disorder, for example diabetes. She has found the right meds for me and I know my life is going to change once I start on the treatment.

Good initial consult! Answered my questions and gave my followup information for treatment. Very helpful when moving back to Texas and needing to find a provider this month.

Straight to the point and didn’t make me feel invalidated about my experiences. 10/10

C.P. ZocDoc

Kathie has really helped me feel like me again. She is kind and patient and doesn't give up even when it's tough.

K. ZocDoc

Kathie is a great listener, she's very personable, and she worked hard to find the best help for me. She was very thorough in asking about my history and symptoms before determining a path forward, and along the way has provided in-depth, careful check-ins to find what has worked and what hasn't. She has also provided very helpful counseling and referrals for other resources.
