The issues particular to transgender /transsexual persons specifically, and all sexual minorities in general have been a special focus of my education and practice.
As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I provide compassionate, up-to-date mental health interventions to my clients. These can range from prescribing medication, providing information about how to improve sleep or nutrition, or simply helping clients to understand how mental health issues happen, how they can affect our lives, and what options for treatment exist. Trauma, anxiety and depression (unipolar or bipolar) are areas of specialty for me, as I have had significant experience treating these issues. Currently, I can treat clients age 17 and over.

Whether you are dealing with a chronic psychiatric condition or seeking care for the first time it can be a daunting task to navigate today's mental health care system. I strongly believe that the most important thing to do when meeting with a patient for the first time is to listen carefully and empathically. Though medications are often an important part of a patient's treatment plan, I strive to use them judiciously and will take the time to explain my rationale for the specific medication I may recommend as part of your care.

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.

I feel that achieving health and happiness comes by addressing many aspects of life-mind, body, spirituality, social connectedness, etc. This holistic approach recognizes that we all have an inherent ability to achieve health and that the focus of treatment should be on addressing barriers to this vs. treating or "curing" a disease. None of my patients have been in a textbook. Diagnoses should be used as a general guide for treatment, but that treatment should be customized for each individual person by taking into account the ways in which they do not fit the "textbook diagnosis".
