- Medication Management
Welcome! I am a psychiatric nurse practitioner that specializes in medication management for psychiatric disorders.
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in Asheville, NC
I pull from the DBT strategies of using a wise mind and coping with intense emotions in evaluation of the use of medications.
I view medication as a tool in your toolbox to assist you in doing the work of therapy and making lifestyle and situational changes. It is rare that a medication will provide full relief of symptoms. I often work with people who are medication averse or anxious about starting medications. It can be a complex process and often times there is a history of bad experiences with providers and medications and managing side effects, I strive to be sensitive to that fact.
