My compassionate, warm and holistic approach is what best describes my practice. As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I often integrate medications that can be helpful and sometimes necessary to make you feel the best for yourself and your loved ones. I believe in a collaborative approach where we both discuss your needs, concerns, and challenges in a way to give you the flexibility to choose the treatment that fits your style.
I incorporate therapy, medications, nutrition, supplements,and often times I order labs to rule out any medical problems affecting your current symptoms. I believe in the importance of learning more about your past and present in order to help you identify areas that could lead to a happier future.
Life can be stressful at times, but by allowing someone to guide you through this process, it may be all you need to live a happy and fulfilling life.
