Sylvia Stevens, PhD, APRN, BC, Psychiatric Nurse in Washington
Although not a Freudian, I subscribe to his view of mental health-the ability to love and work. As a certified specialist in psychiatric mental health nursing and a nursing educator, I bring my years of training and clinical expertise to my work assisting my clients achieve and or resume their highest level of functioning in love and work. My doctorate is in Nursing Science from the Catholic University of America.
During the initial session, I provide a thorough assessment of health and coping. I take biometric measures-height, weight, blood pressure and heart rate readings -ask about diet, exercise, sleep,work, health history, family history, and the current condition that has caused the person to seek therapy.
Most people benefit from supportive, problem-solving therapy that may require only a few sessions. When indicated I will prescribe medication. My fee for the initial evaluation session is $275 and, thereafter, sessions are charged based on the service provided. Payment is expected at the time of service.
