Christina Wei, PhD, RN, PMHNP, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in San Antonio
I specialize in prescribing medication for depression and other mental health problems. I enjoy caring for my patients by getting to know them, working very hard to understand their concerns, and becoming their partner in health care to meet their mental health needs. If you have previously received medication for a mental health condition I can evaluate your condition and prescribe medication. I can also provide advice if you have never taken medication and wonder whether medication is recommended for a problem you are having with issues such as emotions, problem behaviors or habits, appetite, energy, or sleep.
What sets Nurse Practitioners apart from other health care providers is their unique emphasis on the well-being of the whole person with a focus on health promotion, disease prevention, and health education & counseling. NO narcotics/controlled substances prescribed: Ritalin (methylphenidate), Adderall, Concerta, Vyvanse, Ambien (zolpidem), Xanax (alprazolam), Klonopin (clonazepam), Valium (diazepam), or Ativan (lorazepam).
Therapists are available in my office to provide provide counseling, family therapy, and psychoeducation for conditions ranging from stress to serious mental illness in a warm environment. To schedule an appointment please call and select option 1. *I am accepting new patients.* I look forward to meeting you!
