***Tele-psychiatry Offered***Children and Adults*** Medications&Therapy (therapy limited to adults-and based on availability) I take the perspective that we are all complex and should appreciate and understand as best we can the complexity rather than the view that mere molecules alone are affecting our emotional states. I aim to provide what I would expect in my own care or my child's care: an active, present, and compassionate clinician who tries to understand the person or child seeking help and assisting in choosing the best paths for my health, both physical and emotional.

Depression and anxiety can significantly impact a person's quality of life. There are ways to combat these conditions with medication and therapy. A willingness to feel better and want to change is all that is needed to get started on the road to recovery. I look forward to treating the adult population (age 18+), utilizing medication management, brief person-centered psychotherapy and education to help manage distress, empower and motivate patients to achieve their life goals.

The innate desire to work with parents, and support them and their children is one the reasons for my passion for child/adolescent psychiatry. It is our mission at Unity Clinics to aid all children and adolescents struggling with emotional, and or behavioral concerns to overcome these challenges, and guide them and their families to a path of recovery, growth and success. When a child struggles, the whole family struggles, but there is support and guidance at Unity Clinics.

I have grown into tele-psychiatry with my patients and they love it!. It’s ideal for psychiatric medication management but I do spend an hour each month with my people and am available 24/7 directly to me between visits for any questions or concerns that might arise. We do set goals and work together towards them often in concert with psychotherapists and/or 1:1. I specialize in all mood disorders, thought disorders, and substance use disorders. I am licensed to prescribe Suboxone/buprenorphine if this is indicated. My patients have been surprised by the punctuality and quality of my services compared to what they have experienced.

Mental health issues like depression, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, irritability are all too common. They are something we all face at one time or another. Unfortunately there are often many barriers to reaching out for help. My goal is to make it easier for people to find the mental health care they need through my simple-to-navigate website (www.naseehapsych.com). There, clients can schedule appointments on their own or reach out via phone, email, or a secure patient portal. I hope to offer a safe, convenient space for clients to find relief and function at their best.

I provide a combination of medication management and supportive therapy for individuals who struggle with a variety of mental health concerns. I specialize in working with adults, and typical stressors of patients I work with vary greatly, but oftentimes involve: general distress, marital and other relationship difficulties, initial onset depression, chronic depression, anxiety, panic attacks, work distress, and general dissatisfaction and unhappiness in life. These stressors can begin to interfere with day to day life, and I have found that appropriate treatment provides individuals with the assistance of regaining control in their life and improving day-to-day living.
