It takes a lot of trust to disclose that which affects us most intimately. While we have made strides over the years in mental health, stigma continues to have a stronghold in today's society, and it can be difficult to take that first step. I approach every new patient as a unique individual to better provide you with personalized care. This can include genetic testing, correcting nutritional deficiencies, the recommendation of supplements and lifestyle change, brief supportive therapy, psychotropic medication, and specialty referral when necessary. I work mainly with those with ADHD, anxiety, depression, trauma and PMDD.

Psychiatrists are the only doctors who don't look inside the body to assess a problem. Think about it; all other doctors use imaging and labs to look inside a person’s body when making a diagnosis. That coupled with your symptoms is how they determine what the problem is. Unfortunately, mental health providers have learned that how a person feels is their only tool in assessing somebody. Because of this, psychiatrists often have no idea what’s causing the problem. This limits the treatment options to a prescribed “band-aid" that is used to reduce symptoms, instead of addressing the underlying cause of a problem.

My nursing experiences helped me appreciate the lack of resources available for clients suffering with mental illness. I obtained my PMHNP certification with the goal to help decrease the stigma associated with mental illness and be available for those looking for a long term psychiatric provider.

These are strange and disturbing times we are currently living through. While we have to practice physical distancing, our fundamental need for connection has never been more urgent. If you have been considering the idea of psychotherapy or maybe medications for a mood or anxiety disorder or insomnia, our current climate has likely kicked that need into high gear. Remote meetings are not optimal, they can offer a bridge for connection, which can help you get through this weird time.
