Darin PrincipePsychiatric Nurse Practitioner, APRN
My first and primary goal in treatment is to get to know you and understand your story in order to individualize the treatment plan. As your provider, I can help you make informed decisions regarding treatment and symptom management using the latest evidence-based recommendations. In my experience working in family practice, prescribing a medication or multiple medications to treat diabetes or hypertension would only do so much and without other interventions, such as changes in diet, exercise and sleep habits the results were less than optimal. The same holds true in mental health. I have found in my practice that medication can be extremely helpful and very beneficial to the client for many mental health diagnoses but that greater success comes from a multi-modal approach and that there are other effective tools as well, including psychotherapy, mindfulness, lifestyle changes, and nutritional supplementation.
