About the Author
When not writing, I practice life as a physician. I’m a psychiatrist, which gives me the chance to live vicariously through other people’s eyes, hear lots of stories, live lots of experiences — it’s an incredible honor to be part of that. It’s humbling.
I’m board-certified and have licenses in Hawaii, Maine, and North Carolina. I work at a state psychiatric hospital in North Carolina. Most of my patients are severely mentally ill and some criminally insane. Despite the tragedies that surround me, I know there’s hope for everyone, that life can be spectacular no matter who or where you are.
I’ve been practicing medicine for 20 years and wouldn’t trade it for the world. For more information, check out my About page.
“Dr. Rosenthal’s best strength was her tremendous amount of empathy and humanistic qualities that she showed to all of our patients.”
– Austin Williams, MD. Internal Medicine. Houston, TX.
“Kim Rosenthal has a lively and curious mind linked to vigorous standards of patient care. I have always been impressed with her thoroughness and thoughtfulness in formulating diagnoses and treatment…. I could always count on Dr. Rosenthal to go the extra mile, the extra minute with a patient, a pause for the medical student, time to reflect and wonder with her colleagues. Dr. Rosenthal is multilingual and multicultural, bringing many personal gifts to her work.”
– Kathleen Schwarz, MD. Psychiatrist/internal medicine. Charlottesville, Virginia
* SORRY: UNDER CONSTRUCTION! We’re in the process of changing the name of our recovery campaign from “Wacky and Wonderful” to the more mysterious and mature nomenclature “Outside the Box Recovery.” In the meantime, you’ll see both names… sorry, and pardon the mess!
