I am board certified nurse practitioner specializing in psychiatry. My goal is to provide a nonjudgmental environment to explore emotional wellness. As a licensed prescriber, I believe psychiatric medications are one of the tools for effective healing. I take a holistic approach to treatment, incorporating lifestyle modification, therapy, physical wellness, and addressing barriers to optimal mental health. I have experience treating those who are "treatment resistant", or have trialed multiple medications before without finding the right fit. If appropriate, I use genetic testing (Genesight testing) to personalize treatment.

You have been struggling for long enough-- struggling with depression, low energy, anxious thoughts and feelings and the sneaking suspicion that these things won't improve on their own. While you are someone who believes in advocating for yourself, it has been difficult to find the answers for all that you're experiencing with your mental health. I believe that you deserve to work with a medication manager who understands and values the combination of therapy and medications-- who believes in your comprehensive care to finally turn the corner in your mental health and not look back.

Whether you're struggling with ADHD, depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions, I am pleased to offer appointments to clients/patients of all ages.
A healthy patient/provider relationship includes active communication. If you thoroughly relay to me all of your concerns, together we can work on a treatment plan with an end goal of optimal mental health. There is more to mental health care then just prescribing and managing medication. While this is often necessary, a healthy approach to mental health is to consider all treatments, including testing/evaluations and therapy/counseling. My current patients often say they appreciate my willingness and determination to really listen to your needs, instead of rushing into a quick diagnosis and care plan.

Depression Psychiatrists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression psychiatrists in Louisville. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

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