    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. Earnest says...

    I am a pediatric and adult psychiatrist having served as chief resident in child and adolescent psychiatry. From Spokane, WA, I attended Gonzaga University, and then studied medicine in Houston. I graduated from Baylor College of Medicine and returned to Washington State, completing my adult psychiatric residency at UW and pediatric psychiatric residency at Children's in 1998. I've worked in private practice, hospitals, community mental health centers, and multi-specialty pediatric clinics. My work with children, adolescents, adults and families focuses on accurate assessment of difficulties as well as strengths.

    I specialize in impulse control disorders, ADHD, conduct disorder, pervasive developmental disorders, depressive disorders, eating disorders, and anxiety disorders. I look forward to helping patients and families remove the negative intensities in their lives, and celebrate the positive intensities that make them successful.

    Dr. Earnest's Care Philosophy

    As a psychiatrist, my job is to be a good doctor first. My work focuses on helping us become aware of your medical issues that can lead to depression, anxiety, impulsiveness, or other difficulties. And with that knowledge and correction of those medical issues, help you achieve health. While there are many well-qualified therapists in my office and on this website, my job and passion is to help you find the most effective and safest biologic support to return you to emotional health and prevent future difficulties.

    As a psychiatrist, I focus on listening to both the words you are saying and the messages your body is conveying. I focus not only on addressing the clear signs of suffering such as tearfulness and panic, but also the hidden suffering of feeling little joy or being overwhelmed.
