What does a first session with you look like?

Your first session will consist of a consultation that is called a Psychiatric Evaluation, which usually lasts from 45-60 minutes, or longer in some cases, and is conducted via telehealth. The goal of a Psychiatric Evaluation is arrive at a diagnosis by gathering detailed information about your current symptoms of concern and your detailed history. At the end of the visit, we will discuss recommended evidence-based treatment recommendations, and confirm that we are a good fit for working together. Should we decide that we will work together, we will set goals and implement your treatment plan, which in some cases may include an in-person follow-up visit, for some New York residents, depending on the specifics of your diagnosis and treatment plan. Follow-up visits will be designed to track how well we are progressing toward our goals, and determining any additional steps or supports that may be needed.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

As a board-certified Psychiatric Mental-Health Nurse Practitioner, I am educated, trained and licensed to provide care that includes medication management via prescription mental health medications, as well as some forms of psychotherapy, in both Pennsylvania and New York State. In addition, I use the principles of Integrative and Functional Psychiatry, including diagnostic testing and natural supplements when indicated, to further individualize treatment plans. All care provided is evidence-based.
