I am a Nurse Practitioner in Psychiatry who specializes in adolescent, young persons, adults and older adult medication management for anxiety, depression , ADHD and cyclic mood disorders (bipolar disorders). I have been a nurse for over 40 years and a psychiatric NP for 12 years. I believe medication is only helpful when prescribed in small amounts and when the patient is full informed about what the medicine is expected to do to improve symptoms. Nurse Practitioners are "holistic" which means we are less interested in labeling you with a diagnosis and more interested in treating your distressing symptoms.

I specialize in working with clients who are going through some trying time in their lives - relationship stress/breakup, career frustration, health problems, or any life crisis. Sometimes this is a new issue and for others it can be a new event that triggers a long-standing issue. Either way, I work to stabilize symptoms as quickly as possible with medications as needed but also through diet and exercise. I then try to teach my clients how to avoid a return of their symptoms.

However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery.

During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.
