Are you struggling with depression or anxiety that hasn't responded to therapy alone? Psychiatric medications can be helpful when the work you are doing in therapy just doesn't seem to be enough. I get to know you through a thorough assessment and suggest medications that could be helpful. You deserve someone who spends sufficient time with you during appointments, is accessible to answer questions in between and follows up with your other treatment providers. That's the kind of treatment you deserve and I provide. I also work with a team of therapists with a range of specialties.
It's all about you and your story. You are unique and you are the expert on you. Whether you already work with a therapist and just need medication management or you wish to pursue a range of treatment options with me and my team, we will seek solutions together. I understand your time is valuable and offer video appointments for follow up for most patients
I've worked as a Marriage and Family Therapist for 9 years before becoming a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. I also work with a number of colleagues within the Collaborative Counseling Group who provide a range of services including addiction services, EMDR, couples therapy, family therapy and art therapy.
