I began my nursing career in 2014, after I graduated from Chamberlain College of Nursing. I knew at a very young age that caring for others would be my calling. I chose nursing because I am compassionate, empathetic, caring, honest, loyal, and dedicated. These qualities come natural to me as I believe that my main purpose in life is to care for others. Most individuals describe me as self-less and hard working. I have cared for patients of all age groups. I truly believe one of the most important things we can do is to build ourselves back up, and come back even stronger.

As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, I believe that problems with mood, attention, or thought-processes are not liabilities, but opportunities to understand oneself better and to be intentional about strategies for living in more satisfying ways. I have expertise in distinguishing between the problems that respond best to psychotherapy and other life-changes, and those that require the support of psychiatric medications. When medications are needed, I collaborate with clients and use evidence-based strategies to create an individualized plan that maximizes benefits and minimizes side-effects.

I practice psychopharmacology or psychiatric medicine. This is an expanding field, as new medications are developed and we continuously refine our understanding of their use. New technologies can help optimize the choice of medication for each individual. In my practice I see adolescents, young adults, those in middle age, and seniors. Many of those I help have mood instability, including depression and mood swings, intermittent or constant anxiety, or problems with focus, concentration, and productivity. I help individuals who have suffered a sudden terrible loss or trauma, as well as those who have a chronic history of failed relationships.

It is not uncommon to find ourselves somehow off track and disconnected from who we thought we were. Our relationships may seem stuck and deeply unsatisfying. We feel lost and unsure of our place in the world. This may be accompanied by feelings of depression, anxiety or as physical problems. It can be experienced as a deep alienation, sadness and suffering. When we are called to make a change and resist, it can cause havoc in our lives; this can happen whether the change is in the outer circumstances of our life, our inner attitude, our world view, or some combination.

I have been in private practice since 1985. I am a general adult psychiatrist and see those age 13 and older. I am one of the "dinosaurs" who still do psychotherapy as well as medication. I see individuals, couples, and families. Although the majority of my patients see me for mood disorders and anxiety, I have had a special interest in eating disorders since training. My practice has solely been outpatient for many years, thus inpatient care would have to be transferred temporarily to another physician. (note: I am an out-of-network provider.)

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Lake County 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 Lake County has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Lake County child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Lake County). 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 (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.
