About Dr Froude
Originally from Bristol, England, Dr Froude has made his home in Colorado for the past 20 years. His background in the literary arts--combined with a broad knowledge of evidence-based psychopharmacology--affords a unique skillset to understand and conceptualize your individual narrative. This is not "one size fits all" psychiatry. 
He received his MD from the University of Colorado School of Medicine where he gave the class valedictory address and was recipient of both the Franklin Ebaugh Award for psychiatry and the Henry Claman award for contribution to the Arts and Medicine; his PhD from the University of Denver, and his MFA in Writing and Poetics from Naropa University. 
In addition to his psychiatry practice, Dr Froude has authored four books of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, and has taught workshops in nonfiction and experimental forms at the Lighthouse Writers Workshop since 2012. 
His approach to psychiatry is founded on empathy and active listening alongside scientific rigor and an attention to individual nuance. Dr Froude collaborates with his patients toward lasting solutions. He is proud to practice LGBTQ+ affirming psychiatry.
