Jinge Phillips, P.M.H.N.P.-B.C., psychiatry, joins the team of mental health providers at MyMichigan Psychiatry in Midland.
Philosophy of Care
“My philosophy of care starts with respecting, listening to and caring for the patient,” said Jinge. “Designing a plan that begins with evidence-based care as well as consistently monitoring are key to ensuring my patients receive the correct and best care.”
Jinge’s strong curiosity and passion for helping those with mental health issues developed through years of working as a registered nurse and care/case manager at MyMichigan Health. Her knowledge of the many aspects of care, including combating stigma surrounding mental health care, inform her interactions with patients. “I’m most satisfied when I can assist my patients to live and work independently,” Jinge said. “Feeling part of society and a sense of belonging are paramount to stable mental health.”
As psychiatric treatments continue to evolve, Jinge learns new tools and approaches. “Though psychiatry is a well-established medical discipline, there continues to be great strides in understanding and adapting practices for those in need,” she said. Jinge has particular interest in Electro Convulsive Therapy (ECT) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). “These are the most exciting medical discoveries in psychiatry for severe depression in patients who haven’t responded to other treatments,” she stated. “We are able to offer both at MyMichigan Health.”
In addition, Jinge has an interest and experience in working with patients with substance use disorder.
When not at work, Jinge likes traveling to experience new cultures and foods. She enjoys spending time off with husband Derek, and training in Tae Kwon Do with son Dylan, age 13.
