Joyce G Petrosky, Psychiatric Nurse  in Bangor
“PRESENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. My main focus is medication management along with some therapy. I do therapy in an eclectic style, in other words, whatever works for you is where we go. I believe that YOU direct the therapy and ultimately know what you need. For medication, I like to partner with you, providing you with insight into your issue, what would help and we decide together what would be the best options. I like my clients to know what they are taking and why. I try to prescribe as few medications as possible while teaching you methods to help yourself.
