f(x) = -(x+3)^2, x is greater than or equal to 3

I know the first thing you do is switch the variables, so it looks like this:

x = -(y+3)^2

Then expand:

x = -y^2-6y-9

And solve for y:

x + 9 = -y^2-6y

I get a little confused after that with y. Help please? Thank you very much!

sqrt(x) = -(y+3)

-sqrt(x) = y+3

-sqrt(x) - 3 = y
