Medications are often necessary to treat psychiatric illnesses. Our prescribers take care to recommend psychiatric medications and dosages that are most effective at specifically targeting the patient's symptoms, without over-medicating patients. Whether we are starting new medications or streamlining a patient's current medications, our goal is to provide successful management of psychiatric symptoms with minimal side effects. We believe that providing psychiatric care is about treating the whole patient. We consider other medical conditions that may play a role in a person's mental health, and we encourage behavioral and cognitive skills to improve overall mental health.

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, MSN, APRN, PMHNP
I am a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with 6+ years of critical care experience from working in the Intensive Care Unit. It is there, where I discovered my interest in psychiatry and realized just how under-served the mental health population is. My compassion for others coupled with my interest in psychiatry is what prompted me to pursue my degree as a nurse practitioner. My goal is get patients back to living life the way they did before they were affected by mental illness.
