Management of mental health issues has three components: you, your therapist, and your PMHNP. There is no one component that is better than the next. Mental health care is an ongoing treatment that relies on positive intentions and manifestations. The combined work of the client (you), therapist, and medication provider (PMHNP), allows the client to reach the goal of being the best version he/she can be.

I offer psychiatric-mental health evaluations and medication management services to people who are currently in therapy and hopeful that psychotropic medication and other evidence-based strategies might aid in recovery and healing. I work with patients to devise holistic treatment recommendations and plans, offer connection to resources and other clinicians, all the while maintaining focus on patients' strengths, values, and goals. I provide patients with supportive therapy highlighting and reinforcing patients' use of CBT, exposure-based therapy, ACT and relational skills.

As a psychiatrist, I believe that everyone should have access to quality mental health care. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health and I strive to highlight the importance of psychoeducation, allowing each person to know what their symptoms mean in the context of an accurate diagnosis and utilize a patient-centered approach to care. At UpSing Telepsychiatry, we provide psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and brief psychodynamic therapy sessions. We offer in-person visits at our office located in Louisville, Kentucky as well as virtual telepsych visits to residents of Kentucky and Florida.
