Psychiatrist in Tulsa, Oklahoma Heath Mueller, MD

Heath Mueller, MD

Dr. Heath Mueller is board certified in child and adolescent psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. She is a member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She completed both her Bachelor of Science degree and her Doctor of Medicine degree at the University of Oklahoma. Following completion of her medical training, she completed four years of training in general psychiatry at the OU-TU School of Community Medicine. While in residency she gained additional experience in psychiatric crisis management while moonlighting at the Tulsa Center for Behavioral Health. At the completion of her residency, she was awarded the Senior Resident Excellence in Clinical Care Award by the residency program faculty. Dr. Mueller worked in adult mental health at Laureate Psychiatric Hospital and Clinic from 2013-2015 but always knew she wanted to work with children. When OU opened the first child psychiatry fellowship in Tulsa, she was the first applicant accepted to the program. Following completion of her child psychiatry fellowship, Dr. Mueller served as assistant professor at OU in the Department of Psychiatry from 2017-2023. In addition to providing outpatient care for children, teens and young adults, Dr. Mueller supervised child fellows during their training to become future child psychiatrists. She is proud to have helped train a dozen child psychiatrists, many of whom are still practicing in Oklahoma. Dr. Mueller promotes wellness and mindfulness for both her patients and colleagues. She completed over 100 hours of mindfulness training through the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) pioneered by Jon Kabat-Zinn. She engaged in a research project entitled, “Mindful Teachers” that involved training elementary school teachers in the practice of mindfulness with an aim to improve their ability to handle stress in the classroom and beyond. She presented her research findings at the OU-Tulsa Research Forum as primary author on “School Based Mental Health Services through a Trauma Informed Lens” and later at the AACAP annual meeting in 2018. The research was later published in the journal, Psychiatric Services. She tries to incorporate mindfulness in her therapeutic approach. Dr. Mueller feels her career is a calling and not just a job. She cares deeply about taking care of children and adolescents. Dr. Mueller grew up in rural Oklahoma and made Tulsa her home in 2007. She lives with her young daughter and their cat. She lives an active life and loves being outdoors, gardening, hiking and being in nature. She enjoys traveling and some of her most memorable trips were to Kenya, Thailand, Iceland, and the top of Mt. Whitney. She is driven to always learn and grow both as a physician and as a person and applies this knowledge to working with children, teenagers, and their families.
