About Dr. Leifeste

I am a solo practitioner of general (adult), child, and adolescent psychiatry in Boulder since 1984. Having a solo practice of psychiatry, I also enjoy close professional relationships and sharing a suite with three child psychologists and a social worker.

Mark3 SmAfter graduating suma cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin, my medical training began in Houston at Baylor School of Medicine. After a community medicine internship at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, I continued with a general psychiatric residency, then a two year subspecialty training in child and adolescent psychiatry where I was Chief Fellow. I am Board Certified in both General Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

I bring an empathic approach to understanding your issues as comprehensively as possible. Together we will consider a wide array of helpful strategies that may or may not include medication, and almost always some form of therapy.

As a member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, The Colorado Psychiatric Society, and the Colorado Childhood and Adolescent Psychiatry Society, I uphold our ethical standards and those described by the Colorado Board of Medical Examiners.
