      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Carvalho's Care Philosophy

      I am a psychiatrist/psychotherapist providing timely, compassionate, comprehensive and confidential mental health treatment. I've been fortunate to have helped hundreds of people in Kentucky for over 15 years as they've struggled with all kinds of emotional and psychological issues. These have ranged from depression to dementia, bipolar disorder to schizophrenia and addiction to anxiety, to name a few. I've also helped people struggling with life's many questions that had left them feeling incapacitated, anxious & distraught.

      I offer services that are evidence-based, balanced and holistic providing psychotherapy, guidance, support and if necessary medications. My aim is to help you with a personalized treatment plan that you are in control of and completely comfortable with. Most people find it difficult to make it to doctor's appointments during regular business hours. I'm available evenings and weekends so that your personal schedule is not disrupted.

      Dr. Carvalho says...

      The help I provide will be based on my understanding of not just your illness but of you as a person. My goal is to try to eliminate the symptoms that bother you and to help you feel whole again as a person. I look beyond merely what the diagnosis is; I'm more interested in knowing how much you are suffering and what you need to make the emotional pain go away.

      Your care will begin with a thorough evaluation, followed by an in depth discussion of what is wrong. We will then discuss the various treatment options available and I will help you design a treatment plan that you are comfortable with and will remain involved in throughout. Any questions you may have will be answered.Treatment will be a proportionate blend of psychotherapy, support and if appropriate, medications; this is a strategy that works. I expect you to be an active participant in your care.
