I believe we are shaped by our experiences, relationships, and loss over time. As such, all persons will have needs specific to the moment and I aim to provide highly individualized care. I understand that not all situations require medications and I am happy to provide psychotherapy or collaborate with additional therapists in the community.

I treat a variety of conditions, including but not limited to depression & anxiety, trauma & PTSD, Inattention & ADHD, grief, loss, & life transition issues.
My practice offers an integrative approach to psychiatric care, focusing on treating the whole person - body, mind and spirit. This approach is grounded in the belief that each person’s healing journey is unique and should be supported by a treatment plan that is tailored to meet their specific needs. I became a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner in 2005 with the desire to support adolescents and adults in feeling more empowered in their own healing journeys and this remains my goal for each patient who steps into my office.

I am a board-certified psychiatrist (accepting most insurance), and my goal is to help each of my patients build a greater sense of purpose & direction in their daily lives. My approach emphasizes affirming who you are while working on strategies to overcome negative assumptions, along with using appropriate medication. I see patients ages 21-69 for monthly visits, and I focus on depression and anxiety. With every patient, my goal is not just about "making you feel better" - it's about enabling you to be more of an active participant in your own life, especially in how you address the fears or sources of stress you face.

Therefore, I believe every person deserves to be heard, so that no nuance is missed. Patients who are struggling with depression, psychosis, mood swings, difficulty with concentration, sleep, motivation, bipolar illness, trauma, anxiety, addiction, eating disorders, and more, must be able to share freely what their specific treatment needs are.

Grief Psychiatrists

How long does therapy take for grief?

There is no exact timeline for grief counseling. Some people may start to feel better after just a few sessions, while others may take months or longer to feel relief. Some specific approaches, including some types of CBT, may involve a set number of sessions, or therapy may be open-ended until the patient determines they are ready to wrap up. Just as there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there is no right or wrong way to seek therapy for grief.

When should you seek therapy for grief?

Many people mistakenly believe that their grief needs to be debilitating or all-encompassing to warrant therapy. This is not the case. While people who experience severe, prolonged grief—particularly those who are considering self-harm or engaging in unhealthy substance use—are especially likely to benefit from therapy, so too are people whose grief is less intense but still interfering with well-being or daily functioning. In practice, almost anyone struggling to process a loss could benefit from grief counseling.

Can grief be managed without therapy?

Oftentimes, yes. Grief is a near-universal part of being human, and many find that their grief, while profound, does not stop them from participating in day-to-day life and steadily eases over time without outside help. For others, however, the harsh pain of early grief persists for months or years or leaves them unable to function. This group is especially likely to benefit from seeing a therapist, who can guide them through their grief and help them reconnect with the world.

What happens if grief is left untreated?

Because grief does not in itself necessitate therapy, untreated grief will often resolve on its own. However, for some people—particularly those who would qualify for a diagnosis of prolonged grief disorder—untreated grief can be a source of seemingly endless pain or lead them to withdraw from the world. In such cases, treatment can be indispensable, as it can help an individual adapt to the loss and start living again.
