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.

Many people come saying, "Is this all my life is going to be ? Maybe I was meant to feel so bad." We help answer those questions. We may believe in you more than you believe in you. We believe depression and mental illness are a perfect storm of biology, psychology, and environment. We are equipped to look at them all so you can have brighter skies ahead.

Self-care is important to the overall wellbeing and health of an individual. Seeking assistance in sorting out day-to-day issues that impact your ability to attain your goals is the first step in working toward them. Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, worried and sometimes depressed? I understand. Have a child or teen who is afraid, overwhelmed, moody and sometimes irritable? I understand that also. We all have experiences that have shaped who we are today. You are important and you have a story to tell. I am here to listen to yours and to be of service to you.

As a Nurse Practitioner, the core of my training was based on seeing a person holistically. In practice, this involves looking at all factors of a person's life, not just the issue that brought them into therapy. Although I am a prescriber, I believe in psychosocial interventions as a first line approach to healing. However, if we collaboratively decide that medications would be helpful, I provide those services as well. Most people have found it helpful to receive therapy and medication management from one person.

As a Board-Certified Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatrist, I treat individuals of all ages, with both medication and psychotherapy, as appropriate. Whether you are seeking care for yourself or your child, it is important that you feel confidence and trust in me if I'm to be of help. I strongly believe (and research shows!) that the most important factor in successful outcomes is the therapeutic relationship. I encourage you to ask questions, trust your gut, and take time to determine if you feel comfortable. I appreciate that speaking with a psychiatrist may not be easy and takes courage.
