Sean Ackerman received his MD from the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, WA. He attended residency and fellowship at the University of Vermont and is board certified in both General Psychiatry and the subspecialty of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

Dr. Ackerman has also spent time in research at the University of Washington Autism Center, and has published articles in journals such as The Journal of Autism & Developmental Disorders, Fertility & Sterility, Biological Psychiatry, The Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, and JAMA Psychiatry.

Dr. Ackerman's goal is to provide patients with a treatment plan that addresses the whole person. Sometimes that means he draws upon his training in evidence-based psychopharmacology. However, he also specializes in wellness and positive psychiatry. Over the years his practice style has evolved to be one in which he focuses on emotional-behavioral growth as much if not more than prescriptions. 

When not in the clinic he’s usually with his wife and children - preferably outside in the woods, on a lake, or hiking a trail. He also watches way too many movies.
