I'm a psychiatric NP, certified,& licensed to prescribe. I evaluate, diagnose, & treat mental problems. If problems at home, school, or work cannot be fully resolved with counseling, then medicine may help move you closer to resolution of your problems. Most of my patients have suffered from anxiety, depressive, mood stability, & attention problems. Usually, in a few months, most have had their problems resolve. Call for a brief chat, then request the paperwork for an appointment. Once the paperwork is complete & returned in the envelope provided, I'm usually able to schedule you in about a week for an approximately 1&1/2-hour evaluation.
I became a RN in 1976, started working in psychiatric hospitals in 1979, earned a Masters in Nursing in 1999, & certification as an adult psychiatric nurse practitioner in 2001. After supervision for 2 years, and several years of practice at public clinics, I started an independent, private practice in 2008.
Medication management is not necessarily a simple or quick cure for an ailment. Medications are generally beneficial, but have risks. I have evaluated patients who I determined to have a medical issue causing their psychiatric problem, then referred them to the appropriate medical specialist, who affected the proper resolution.
