Having difficulty finding a provider that meets your needs? I have been there in that seat asking for help just like you are. This is the reason I chose psychiatry as my specialty. I MUST know I am making a difference. With the lack of psychiatric providers and long waiting lists, this makes me work even harder. Seeing my patients progress and regain the ability to cope with daily life brings me joy and relief, just as it does you.

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.
