Seeking mental health treatment in itself can be a challenging prospect for many people. I'm glad you are taking this step! I aim to help patients feels comfortable, safe and that they are in partnership with me to meet their goals. By working together, therapy can be a rewarding experience where patients come to understand themselves, relationships, and patterns of interacting in new ways to effect positive change. At times, medication is needed in conjunction with therapy to address acuity of symptoms and augment progress. In addition to individual and family therapy, I offer medication evaluation and management as needed.

One of the advantages of seeing a psychiatric nurse practitioner is that we can provide both individual and family therapy (as social workers, counselors, and psychologists do) as well as medication management services (as psychiatrists do), often at less than 50% of the cost of visiting a psychiatrist.
As a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner, I can provide high quality, affordable mental health care for your child without a long wait. My approach to care is collaborative, which means that you will ALWAYS have an active voice in the treatment. Not all mental health concerns require medication, of course, but if we do decide that medication may be helpful, my philosophy is always to "start LOW and go SLOW." My goal is to help your child achieve full remission of symptoms and an optimal level of functioning with as little medication as possible.

I believe that one approach does NOT fit all and that you are unique with your own story, family history, genetics, life style and goals. I take all these factors into consideration and allows for a plan that addresses each of these areas. I believe that comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and innovative therapeutic approaches designed specifically for you will provide the best possible outcome. I have many tools in my evidence-based approach including medications, supplements to address biological deficits, herbs instead of psychotropic medications when requested and appropriate, psychotherapy, and life style changes.

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 Austin has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.
