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.

It can be difficult at times to understand that our current emotional state is that of depression or anxiety. Many times we have been stuck in this emotional and psychological state for so long, that if feels like normal but yet not so normal and unsure what to do or how to seek help. Many times we are working, managing our families, going to school and or doing all of the above, and everything feel heavy, fog, dull, fast, overwhelm etc. I know that you have worked hard, and continues to work hard towards wellness. It may feel unreachable, but sometimes seeking outside help can help move your wellness in the right direction.
