I am a Board Certified Psychiatric / Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist. I am an independent advanced practice nurse with specialized education and training in mental health and am licensed to prescribe medications. I evaluate, provide medication assessment and management for adults dealing with depression, anxiety, panic, mood disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, and attention deficit disorders.
I believe in a holistic approach to wellness which includes physical health, stress, lifestyle, sleep and diet for management of symptoms. During our appointment, I will listen to your concerns and then we will work together to develop a plan for your care. I believe it is important to treat the whole person and medication alone will not address nor treat all causes of psychiatric symptoms. A combination of therapy and medications can be the best treatment approach to help you manage difficult situations in your life and maintain long-term benefits.
I believe that we all have our own unique journey in life and at times we need some help along the way.Debora
