Let’s Walk Together Toward a Brighter Future
Dedicated Psychiatric Treatment and Medication Management
I see children, adolescents, and adults. We begin with a consultation and over several sessions we will collaborate with families, schools and any other providers needed. I’ll give my recommendations of what course of action to take. Also, we will work together to find the best treatment for you.
During our sessions, you are more than welcome to ask any questions that come to mind. You are in a safe and welcoming atmosphere where there are no “stupid” questions.
We will work together to find the right treatment that suits your needs. After all, every individual is different and as we work together, I will adapt to said needs to provide the best possible service.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder/Phobias
Overview. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced a shocking, scary, or dangerous event. It is natural to feel afraid during and after a traumatic situation. Fear triggers many split-second changes in the body to help defend against danger or to avoid it.

Parenting or child rearing promotes and supports the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parenting refers to the intricacies of raising a child and not exclusively for a biological relationship.
