I'm a Board-Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (APRN), licensed to prescribe psychiatric medication across the lifespan. At our practice, we collaborate with patients and their therapists to use medications conservatively, while always incorporating holistic methods to assist in recovery. I have 30 years of experience as a chiropractor, treating patients without the use of medication. Now, with the ability to prescribe medication, I carry with me the philosophy that judicious medication use is key in treatment plans. My strength is in adolescents, adults and geriatric patients.

With my patients, we decide together what kind of therapy would best suit their individual needs. Sometimes it's weekly therapy and sometimes I may recommend medication. The overall goal is always the same: to help you gain an understanding of the problem at hand, to support you in the process of recovery, and to complete treatment with a healthier and happier frame of mind and body.

I'm board certified in both general psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry focusing on the complex issues of adolescents and young adults ages 13-29. These years of development can be complicated and confusing, and the time for the emergence of many psychiatric disorders. My areas of interests include anxiety, depression, and the transitioning to college. I also help college students return back to school when they have had to take a break due to stress leading to poor grades, family issues, relationship conflicts, or other emotional hardships..

My motto is "Promoting Self-Regulation, and Bio-Emotional Health". I am a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist. I provide psychotherapy and pharmacological treatment for those who need it. I believe medications are not the answer to people emotional, psychological, and behavioral problems. My patients are individuals who want to improve the quality of their life and find their way to a satisfying and fulfilling future. My treatment approach is focused on the strengths of each individual and on helping people to obtain more insight and discover their true self.

We are living through some pretty extraordinary times. Sometimes it's hard to make sense of it all and keep putting one foot in front of the other. If you find you are struggling to experience the joy you once had, you aren't alone. Cultivating and maintaining healthy behaviors and relationships, managing unhelpful thoughts and keeping anxiety from running the show are all achievable. You don't have to white knuckle your way through this alone.

Are you looking for a psychiatrist who is equally skilled and passionate in the arts of psychotherapy and psychopharmacology (prescribing medications)? My clinical style is engaging, interactive, and nonjudgmental. Medications are available when appropriate/helpful, but are just one of the tools available. I am also well-versed in talk therapy approaches when medications are not indicated/desirable. I look forward to your teaching me about the many different pieces that make you you, including looking at your medical health and social/family structures. I look forward to working together to find the right approach for you.

As I have grown and developed during the thirty five years I have practiced psychiatry I feel the need to define myself and my interests more specifically. External forces are working to limit the Psychiatrists' role to medication prescriber. I certainly do some of this as the goal of symptom alleviation is an important one. What appeals most to me, however, is to work with individuals to achieve a more fundamental shift. Growth at a deeper level. Consequently, I have consolidated medication and talk therapy "under one roof." This provides efficiency and power difficult to achieve with split therapy.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Fairfield is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Fairfield Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Fairfield has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Fairfield, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Fairfield Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
