About

Have you been frustrated by providers who don't really listen and seem to rush through your appointments or throw medications at you without taking their time to get to know you and your concerns? You will always feel heard, valued, and validated with me. My 15 years of nursing background gives me the foundation of compassionate, patient centered care, while my rigorous graduate studies prepared me to prescribe the right medications for the right person under the right circumstances. Call 352-575-3600 or book online at www.evolutionmentalhealth.com.
I treat all kinds of mental health conditions. I have extensive experience in, and a passion for treating ADHD, anxiety disorders (including phobias, panic, and agoraphobia), depression), and LGBTQ mental health (including affirming gender diversity). I offer psychiatric evaluations and medication services.
I will work WITH you to find the right treatment and will always value your contribution to our collaboration. I would love the opportunity to help you feel like your best self. I love seeing people flourish with the right treatment. New patient appointments $285, follow-ups $125.
