As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, I treat the entire range of psychiatric conditions, ranging from fairly straightforward cases of depression and anxiety to significantly complicated presentations including mental illness, substance abuse, and personality disorders. Most of my patient's problems may be related to excessive stress due to a particular situation or series of events. Most patients come to me seeking for help. Fortunately, with proper care and treatment many individuals learn to cope or recover from a mental illness or emotional disorder.

I've been an osteopathic psychiatrist for over 27 years. Trained as both a psychotherapist and psychopharmacologist, I use a combined approach to symptoms—often talk therapy, and medication, when needed. As an osteopathic doctor, I look at you as a whole person. Not only the psychiatric issues, but environmental, social, or underlying medical disease. I'm also more attuned to side effects of medication and how medication may actually be causing the problem. My therapy approach is a combination of insight-based (cognitive) and emotion-based (learning emotional awareness and acceptance of your body’s full range of sensations).
