As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I provide psychiatric medication to mostly younger adults (18+) and college students with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, OCD, PTSD. I treat ADHD with a confirmed diagnoses; I don't offer ADHD testing. I do my best to help you understand potential side effects and how medication can help alleviate symptoms. Medication is one piece of a treatment plan. Most people I see also see a therapist. Taking the time to explore and understand your inner world in whatever way is valuable to you is an essential piece of treatment. I collaborate with a supervising psychiatrist, Margaret Bauman, MD.

As a solo practitioner, I am limited in who I can effectively treat. If you have major mental illness such as schizophrenia, recent hospitalizations, substance abuse, eating disorders or personality disorders, my practice is not the right fit for you. Hospitals, agencies, or larger practices with a team approach may be more suitable.

Self-pay rates are $300 for an Initial Evaluation (50 minutes), and $150 for follow up appointments (25 minutes). We'll meet more frequently when starting a new medication or when making changes, then visits may be spaced out at longer intervals, up to 3 months between visits. **Please note I'm currently only seeing new patients by referral** Thanks!
