Welcome to Dr. Dana Krafchick's web site.
I am a Board Certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist in private practice in Centennial, Colorado. I work with individuals and families who have a wide range of mental health concerns, from depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety to ADD/ADHD and behavior problems.
I developed this website to help answer questions about mental health problems and the role of psychiatric treatment. In addition, the site has downloadable documents specific to my practice.
Office voice mail is checked regularly. Please leave any clinical messages at 303-799-4110. Clinical questions are addressed at appointments and by phone only. E-mail is used for scheduling and administrative functions only. E-mail is not used to address clinical concerns. For weather closures, call the voice mail for up to the minute details.
The mission of my practice is to assist children, adolescents, and adults to manage their lives successfully and maximize their potential. The process involves active participation of the identified patient and his/her support system.
I provide psychotherapy as well as medication management. To determine whether or not medication treatment is indicated, I conduct a comprehensive assessment of target symptoms and I provide detailed information on the benefits and risks of medication so that an individual or a child and his/her parents can determine whether or not that is an option they wish to pursue.
