Introduction

Dr. Kristopher Poliakiwski is a psychiatrist who treats a range of conditions and specializes in treating acute psychiatric conditions, including severe suicidal ideation. Offering individualized, fluid care that is personal and patient-focused, Dr. Poliakiwski considers the entire patient, which includes spiritual well-being.

Dr. Poliakiwski sits with his patients through their intensely challenging moments with the goal of helping them get to a better place where they feel more whole. “I strive to help my patients get what they need throughout their treatment to become more functional and have a better life,” he says. “We figure out how to help them feel stronger right now and empowered in the short and long term."

When he’s not caring for patients, Dr. Poliakiwski enjoys spending time with his family outdoors, especially hiking and skiing in the mountains and doing water sports in the summer.
