Are you looking for someone who can both prescribe medications and be present and listen to your experience?
I value the importance of combining therapeutic techniques with medication management. For ten years as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I have treated a variety of patients suffering from trauma, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, ADHD, borderline personality disorder and suicidal or self injurious behaviors. On a part time basis, I have a “co-therapist” named Bella. She is trained as a therapy dog for the purpose of providing animal assisted therapy.
I am passionate about the healing effects of dog assisted therapy. If you are a parent seeking treatment for a child who may be apprehensive about therapy, or an animal lover who feels at ease in the presence of animals, sessions with Bella may be a helpful option. I completed the Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) foundational training in 2014 and incorporate DBT concepts into my work. If my descriptions feels like a good fit, please contact me at the number or email provided here.
