It is my goal to provide excellent patient care. When psychiatric medications are indicated, I recommend and prescribe very thoughtfully. I offer psychopharmacological education and management to assess efficacy, tolerability, as well as monitor for possible risks. I assess each client's health and wellness and use a client-centered approach, interweaving individual strengths into a treatment plan to promote wellness. I respect and promote individuals to have an active voice in their treatment. I will work with an individual to build a trusting therapeutic alliance by listening, understanding and providing support to achieve positive change.
