About My Clients

You may have tried other treatments (such as therapy) which helped, but not enough. In such cases, prescribed medication can be the missing link to substantially improved mental health and overall well-being. I prefer to work collaboratively with your existing support structure (therapists, family, friends) to find the individual regimen that will bring meaningful results. And I collaborate with you--we're in this together to get that smile back.

My Background and Approach

>>JUDICIOUS MEDICATION MANAGEMENT<< My goal is for you to get the results you desire at the minimum dosage required. Modern medications are true wonders in effectively improving mental health and life outcomes. But they can have downsides–including possible physical or psychological dependence, interactions with other medications you may be taking, or side effects. My job is to find the optimal regimen for you that maximizes benefits and minimizes or eliminates any potential downsides. ​>>A RESULTS-ORIENTED THERAPEUTIC RELATIONSHIP<< Finding that optimal regimen is a process we do together. I prescribe just one medication, or make one change to a regimen, at a time. This way, you and I will know that Change X caused Effect Y. When we meet, a combination of your self-reports to me and my clinical judgment of your status will inform the next step. Any changes will be with my recommendation and your approval; we work together to achieve positive results.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

You may come from any background, but these are my emphases: >>>WOMEN in their reproductive years facing the MENTAL HEALTH aspect of these challenges: * Fertility issues * Pregnancy issues * Postpartum * Parenting challenges. >>>CHILDREN, PRETEENS AND TEENS facing * Loneliness * Anxiety * Depression * Trauma/PTSD >>> BACKGROUND: Over 20 years as a midwife, not only delivering babies but caring for women before, during and after pregnancy and birth. I often made use of the holistic arts in my practice--I believe not every change you make needs to involve medication. I offer suggestions on evidence-based lifestyle changes to improve health and mood--dietary changes, supplements, exercise, stress-reduction techniques, or even uplifting activities in conjunction with any medication regimen you are prescribed. In combination, these can improve medication's effect and, possibly, achieve desired results at lower dosages. I work in collaboration with your existing supports.
