I am a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Board Certified (PMHNP-BC) practicing in Syracuse, NY.
My practice is focused on treating individual adolescents and adults age 13 years and older. I see each patient as an individual and work to provide him or her with appropriate psychiatric treatment. Treatment methods that I commonly use include medication management, brief therapy, long term therapy, supportive therapy, along with a variety of other treatment modalities. It is important to know that not all patients with mental health issues require medications, and not all patients require psychotherapy. The treatment that I provide is completely individualized to provide the most optimal care for that person. Regardless of your treatment program, I know that you will find compassion and understanding during our time working together.
I work with individuals dealing with a variety of conditions, including but not limited to:
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Eating disorders
