    What is a psychiatric nurse practitioner?

    A psychiatric nurse practitioner is a registered nurse with advanced academic and clinical experience, which enables him or her to perform psychological assessments, makes diagnoses, conduct therapy, and prescribe medications for individuals with a psychiatric disorder.

    A psychiatric nurse practitioner is not a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is a trained physician who has completed medical school and residency in psychiatry. If you prefer to work with a psychiatrist, or if a referral to a psychiatrist is appropriate for a complex problem, I will provide you with referral information and directly assist you with the referral process.

    Initial Evaluation

    During the initial evaluation, we will review your current symptoms, past mental- and physical-health histories, current medications, and goals for treatment. Together, we will devise a plan that may involve medication, therapy, or a combination of both.

    Medication Management Visits 

    Mental health medications can significantly improve symptoms and help promote recovery. We use medications judiciously, opting for the least amount of medications necessary to help relieve symptoms. Appointments for medication management are scheduled for 15 – 30 minute sessions and are used to monitor your response. After starting a new medication or during times of dose adjustment, we will meet more frequently (every one to two weeks). Once stable or in remission, follow-up appointments will occur at a minimum of every 12 weeks.
