Life is Challenging, You Need a Psychiatrist That Understands
Dr. Fairweather understands first-hand what it’s like to suffer from childhood trauma, struggle with chemical dependency and addiction and then live soberly as an adult with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD).
She knows how challenging life can be at times.
Coupled with her sobriety, her ongoing medical training in psychiatry and specializations in addiction medicine and adult ADHD, she’s committed to helping others live their best life yet.
Her unique background and story give her an uncommon empathy for patients seeking recovery, healing, and improvement.
Our goal is to provide you with personalized, thorough, effective treatment in an environment that is professional, welcoming and private. ~ Dr. Fairweather

Initial Evaluation with Doctor Fairweather
The initial evaluation is typically 40 to 50 minutes in length, depending upon the complexity of your case. Dr. Fairweather uses this time to gather detailed information about your history of symptoms, behavior patterns and relationship styles to carefully formulate a Psychiatric diagnosis. Once you have been educated about your diagnosis and treatment options, medications are prescribed when appropriate. Referrals for counseling and/or medical follow up are made when necessary.
Follow up visits with Doctor Fairweather
Follow up visits, typically 15 minutes in length, are for close monitoring of your response to medical treatment. These visits allow for prompt, appropriate adjustments to your treatment regimen as necessary to maximize your wellness. For those patients in need of psychotherapy, referrals to skilled counselors and psychotherapists will be made.
