Oliver J. Yost, M.D.

My understanding of psychiatry is firmly rooted in profound respect for biology and life experiences. Genetics provide varying degrees of potentials and possibilities. Life's experiences, from as early as the moment of conception, shape those genetic potentials with early social relationships being especially important in influencing how we feel and what we believe about ourselves, other people, and our world. We live under the conscious and unconscious influences of these past experiences and our ongoing ability to make active choices. The more we understand how we have become who we are and the more we diligently work to make change, the more mentally healthy we can become. Enduring change is often very difficult and requires continuing effort, but it is possible and vitally important.
