Niels Nielsen, MD


In my treatment approach I emphasize how physical and mental health complement each other. Through understanding social, cultural, psychological and biological aspects of one's mental health, I provide a comprehensive treatment to my patients. 


I trained in psychiatry and psychotherapy at the University of Virginia, where I also served as a chief resident. I am board certified in Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, working in private practice in Seattle. I also serve as a Clinical Instructor at the University of Washington and as a psychiatrist in the Swedish Medical Group. 

In my spare time, I enjoy photography, learning languages, playing drums, and watching Seattle bands live.
