I am here to offer medication evaluations and consultations to help you feel empowered in managing and reducing your symptoms, while improving your coping skills to work through anxiety, depression, OCD , ADHD, and insomnia.
I help teens, adults, and seniors identify and cope with distressing symptoms that are disrupting their daily life. If you are struggling with the overwhelming stress of living right now, you are not alone. Depression, anxiety, impulsivity, overwhelm, guilt, or low self-confidence can be painful, both physically and mentally, and can also create serious relationship, school, and work difficulties. I am a psychiatric APRN who helps teens, adults, and seniors work through what can be overwhelming and confusing symptoms to identify the best medication treatment to restore balance to their mind and body.

Clients who seek treatment with me are often feeling anxious, overwhelmed, depressed, confused, and exhausted by any number of life events, disappointments, losses, and transitions, with which they may have been dealing on recent or long-term basis. Sometimes, they are perceived and labelled as "difficult" or "demanding" by other medical professionals, family, and that has become their self-perception. They see themselves heading down paths that are futile, yet familiar, and they feel hopeless. They call because they want change. I am here to help.

I strive to understand each of my clients as an individual and to craft treatment options that are most appropriate to their needs and preferences. I have found that, where possible, it is best to take a minimalist approach to medication interventions, balancing these with appropriate therapy interventions and focus on life changes that can improve a client's mental health or addiction difficulties. I bring many years of caring treatment experience to each of my client's individual needs. I look forward to working with you.

I specialize in treating patients who are struggling with depression, anxiety, erratic moods, attentional difficulties, eating concerns, or the after-effects of trauma. I provide thorough psychiatric evaluations, with attention to the psychological and social aspects of your distress, as well as to possible underlying medical factors. After an initial evaluation, usually completed in one 90-minute session, we discuss treatment options. If medication is being considered, we discuss the risks and benefits before making any decisions. Ultimately, I offer information and recommendations but respect your choices.

I believe every person is unique and therefore needs an individually-tailored therapy approach. My primary approach is psychodynamic, existential and action-oriented. Psychodynamically, I work with my patients to understand how patterns of thinking and feeling from early childhood affect their current lives. Existentially, I help my patients to find personal meaning in their life and cultivate their uniqueness. An empathic & action-oriented approach enables my patients to make real and lasting changes in their personal and professional lives. If desired by the patient, I can prescribe psychiatric medication when medically indicated.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Psychiatrists
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
