This practice is closed at this time. I am a certified Adult Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Prac titioner (PMHNP). To me the most important factor in therapy is creating a safe, supportive environment as well as a connection to each client and they're individual needs. For that purpose, I utilize several approaches for working with clients, including talk therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), hypnosis, meditation and imagery. I also prescribe psychiatric medication as an aid in calming distressing symptoms, supporting greater functioning and growth.
