Many successful people live with an inner torment, saying to themselves, "If I only had someone to talk to", but they are afraid to seek help. It feels overwhelming and shameful. In fact, my patients often feel better after just one session, because I listen in a way that respects their autonomy and their own perspective. Together we strive to understand the problems in a truly nonjudgmental way.

Are you are looking for a prescriber who is well trained, experienced and compassionate while you are engaging in therapy and getting back to a healthy self care routine? Have you tried psychotropic medications that have not worked? Would you rather take natural remedies but have not had that much success? I do believe that psychotropic medications can be helpful short and long term. Nurse practitioners are known for their holistic approach and see you in the context of your culture, environment and situation. I am fond of collaboration with other providers to build a team for you and your mental health.

I am a board-certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, and provide a collaborative therapeutic environment to assist adults in navigating life's journey. I can provide assistance with anxiety, depression, grief, as well as relationship issues, and life transitions. My approach is psychoanalytic. This means I take into consideration what may be lying outside of our awareness as we talk about your upbringing, your challenges, and your triumphs. I can assist you in coming into deeper awareness of the origins of core issues and beliefs, as well as help you come to terms with the existential givens of life.

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, PMNHP

I am a unique psychiatric prescriber in that I am openly critical of psychiatry and psychiatric medications. This means I am more aware of the risk and potential harms of medications than the typical provider. I am interested in helping people be on the least amount of psychiatric medications as possible, and I have an understanding of the potential challenges with psychiatric drug withdrawal. I focus mainly on therapy in my practice, and it is necessary that this is something you are wanting to invest in. I prioritize principles of mindfulness, spending time in nature, slowing down, reducing screen-time, and spirituality.

Are you experiencing distress due to trauma, relationships, fears, internal conflicts, self esteem, or feeling stuck. Some things are just too difficult to go through or examine alone and having compassionate, open and knowlegeable accompaniment can be the key to understanding and growth. I provide psychodynamic therapy to adults.

As a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), I have been trained in evidence based and trauma informed treatment modalities that aim to address the entire patient as a whole. We are more than just a diagnosis or a grouping of symptoms, we are individuals seeking balance and understanding of how and why we interact with our environment and in our relationships in the ways that we do. Through collaboration and building holistic therapeutic relationships, good mental health can be the cornerstone of a solid foundation for you to stand on as you build the life you want.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Portland 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 Portland has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. 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 , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Portland, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Portland Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
