- Medication Management
About My Clients
I work with clients aged. 18-65, with varying concerns including depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, bipolar, marital and interpersonal concerns, marriage/relationship and parenting difficulties. I am body positive, and especially enjoy supporting and working with the kink, poly, and LGBTQI communities.
My Background and Approach
My practice balances medication management with therapy. I believe providers are able to give the best care when a therapy component is included, and sessions are not restricted to a 10 minute visit. With both together, we have a better foundation for achieving your goals. I do emphasize that therapy is a critical component to recovery and healing, and for patients to have an established provider for this. Weekly or biweekly visits are typically ideal, under the care of a therapist.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I admire and appreciate what makes every person unique and an individual. My love of learning carries through to my practice, as I try to learn as much as I can about the person themselves, and then what I can do to help with their goals. The biggest points about myself as a person is my insatiable drive for learning, with this a specific passion for learning about other cultures and backgrounds. I'm a firm believer in self care - us needing to set appropriate boundaries with others and ourselves in order to live the best life we can. Supporter of the arts and culture - theater, art museums, literature, and am a big foodie. Most will find that I'm pretty down to earth and easy to talk to. Many are not thrilled to walk into a psych provider's office and I completely understand where they're coming from. I try to help individuals feel as comfortable as possible, and ensure that nothing is done without them being on board, even if that means we just talk for the hour.
