Developing a secure therapeutic relationship with my client provides a strong foundation for healing. My approach to care is relational, empowering, and embraces the holistic nursing model, taking into account lifestyle-teaching and cultural considerations. Common presentations include depression, anxiety, OCD, mood disorder, adjustment, and history of trauma/abuse. My professional interests include comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, psychoeducation, psychotropic medication management, non-pharmacological treatment options, solution-focused brief therapy, supportive therapy, strengths-based approach, harm reduction, self-care, spirituality, intersecting identities, serving the BIPOC community, providing LGBTQ+-affirming care, and ADHD skills training.
I judiciously provide psychiatric medication management for adults actively engaged and meeting regularly with their therapists. I work in close collaboration with therapists, and health care providers as indicated, to provide comprehensive, integrated, and well-informed care in hopes to maximize client outcomes. I maintain a conservative approach regarding medications with potential for abuse and/or dependence. I do not do disability- or employment-related evaluations, or court evaluations/testimony.
I can't change the direction of the wind,
but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
