Are you feeling anxious, depressed and/or unmotivated? Do your dreams and goals seem out of reach? Have you been told that you are physically present but emotionally absent in relationships? Maybe your difficult emotions get in your way and you want to move past them, but you aren’t sure how to do it. Have you been with a life coach but want to go further in your transformation? Are you staying in therapy but you don’t seem to be going anywhere? You need more specific strategies and a better support system to empower yourself. Then you’d feel most alive and aligned with yourself.

TELEPSYCHIATRY- ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Thyroid. I am a dually certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and Family Nurse Practitioner passionate about health and wellness. I am trained in traditional medicine and psychiatry with 16 years of combined experience. However, I have found that traditional medicine does not always consider the underlying root cause of a condition or symptoms. I take an evidenced-based approach to understanding how inflammation, nutrition, lifestyle, gut health, hormones and stress impact physical and mental health. I prescribe both medications and nutraceuticals as needed.

As you consider talk therapy or medications, you're likely feeling some mix of overwhelmed, exhausted, unfulfilled, and "stuck." The way you feel might be connected to challenging transitions in your life, a sense of unmet potential, or even long-held emotions and memories of painful experiences and relationships. The good news is that therapy works, and finding the right "fit" in a therapist is a big initial step. Please feel free to contact me anytime to talk more or click over to my website to see a full description of my approach, fees, etc. I look forward to hearing from you!

Teletherapy Psychiatrists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Portland, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Portland listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
