Dr John Frederick is a psychiatrist in private practice in downtown Seattle.

Services offered

I specialize in adult psychiatry and provide psychotherapy (based on availability and type of problem) and medication-based (psychopharmacological) treatments for common psychiatric conditions.  These include mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, adjustment disorders, and ADHD.  My treatment approach will include reflective listening in order to increase insight and reduce the impact of negative emotions.  As this occurs, I try to highlight the balance between acceptance of one’s life as it is and commitment to positive changes.

Conditions, situations and populations which I do not treat include:

  • Drug or alcohol overuse/abuse
  • Behavioral disturbance related to dementia
  • Severe eating disorders
  • Anger management
  • Court ordered treatment
  • Children and Adolescents
  • Disorders which necessitate case management
