About the author/contact

kim rosenthal, mdWhen not writing recovery workbooks and looking for answers, Kim Rosenthal practices life as a psychiatrist.

Most of her career has been as a travelling physician, which has afforded her the chance to work in many places, both inside and outside the USA.  She’s had the honor to participate in the lives of thousand of people in a many different settings, including detox  units, rehabs, acute and long-term hospitals, forensics, ACT teams, clinics, emergency rooms, geropsychiatry, and telepsychiatry.  She also spent six months of her training in Spain.

Dr. Rosenthal believes that a psychiatrist’s role is to support her patients through life’s darker moments.  Psychiatry is, after all, the art of alleviating suffering.  But it is in knowing that each person is unique, that our patient’s minds can’t simply be stuffed into the diagnostic boxes in our textbooks, that the real work begins.  The good psychiatrist takes off her jacket, sits down, listens to what the patient has to say, and seeks to hear of their passions and strengths as much as their struggles.
