I focused on treating patients with a variety of mental health conditions such as Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, SUD. I have the privilege to work with a diverse population providing culturally competent care and eliminate stigmas associated with mental health. I would be honored to help you navigate your life challenges. Many experience challenges caring for loved ones, life, health and circumstances. They lack coping skills. It is always challenging when your life changes direction, whether anticipated or not. Sometimes we need some new tools to help us dealing with these changes and to become more resilient in life

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, DNP, PMHNP, CARN-AP
Verified
In my practice, I understand that there are often concerns, worries, and even deep fears regarding psychiatry and psychopharmacology. This is why, along with a wholistic philosophy, I take a “start low and go slow” approach to medications, paying special attention to the medication potency and potential interactions with other medications prescribed by other providers. I also believe “knowledge is power,” so together, we spend significant time on education and explanation so that you understand the recommendations provided and you are fully comfortable with the treatment plan which I always provide in writing for your reference.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Washington 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 Washington 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 Washington, 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. Washington Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
