As a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner with over 16 years experience in the field, I have had the opportunity to work with patients of all ages and in a variety of treatment settings. Specialty areas are peri/postpartum depression, mood disorders, addictions, family conflict, attention-deficit and anxiety disorders.
Here at my private practice, Family Psychiatric Services, I provide both therapy and/or medication management for my patients. My philosophy is that mental health treatment should be holistic, focusing not only on the presenting symptoms, but also on exploring the hidden causes behind them.
Many of my patients come to the office in despair after many years of failed attempts at psychotherapy and medication trials. My unique approach involves providing holistic mental health interventions, such as nutrition and homeopathy, as an adjunct to traditional psychiatric treatments. This approach has been shown to give relief to patients that haven't responded to mainstream mental health modalities.
