I began my healthcare career as a Certified Nursing Assistant and Behavioral Health Technician over a decade ago when I realized my passion to help others. I then decided to continue my education and received my first degree in Nursing, so that I could continue to help people within the greater Northern Arizona community. My experience assisting individuals with their mental health concerns led me to continue with my graduate studies at Frontier Nursing University and receive a Master’s Degree as a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.

Depression Psychiatrists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression psychiatrists in Show Low. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
