- Medication Management
I'm a psychiatric nurse practitioner who prescribes medication in a mindful way to patients in NH and MA
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in Andover, MA
I take a holistic approach to medication management. I understand that choosing to make medication part of your treatment plan may be scary at times. I hope to support you in this part of your healing. It's important that you are well informed and that you feel comfortable working with me regarding your medication. I make sure that you are medically stable to initiate or continue medication by monitoring your blood work and symptoms. It's important I listen to your improvement and your history.
Depression can steal the most precious moments from your life. It is insidious in the way it ebbs and flows, often draining you of your energy and ability to engage in your life. We can work together to understand what is at the root of your depression and rule out any underlying illness. I often work with patients recovering from comorbid illness such as: cancer, autoimmune disorders (such as lupus, arthritis, Chron's Disease) and women's health issue such as infertility and PMDD.
Women's mental health should be considered including external stressors, role in family and society, hormones and life phase changes. I work closely with women who struggle with post-partum depression and plan with my patients before and during pregnancy. Your choice is important and should be informed. I monitor and treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder, working closely with your OBGYN. Also treating: eating disorders, relationship issues, body image, body dysmorphia.
