Does your child struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, social skills or low self esteem? I specialize in child and adolescent psychiatry. Since research has shown that the most effective treatment combination is psychotherapy and medication, I like to use evidence based treatments in my practice and tend to be conservative in my approach to medications. I use a patient centered approach to care. I understand that mental health treatment is unique to each patient and their family and I strive to help each patient with their individual need. I offer tools such as meditation and exercise as opposed to a medication only approach.
I am a board-certified family psychiatric nurse practitioner. I have a master's degree in psychiatric nursing specializing in mental and behavioral health medicine. I have verifiable experience in treating variety of psychiatric disorders such as; mood disorders including resistant depression, eating disorders, ADHD, OCD, PTSD, schizophrenia, stress and sleep related disorders.
