Hi there, my name is Doreen and I am a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. As a healthcare provider, I am dedicated to delivering compassionate, patient-centered care that is tailored to each individual's unique needs. I believe that mental health is an essential component of overall wellness, and I am passionate about helping my patients achieve their full potential. One of the core values that guide my practice is resourcefulness. I stay up-to-date with the latest research in the field and am always seeking out new and innovative treatment options that can help my patients achieve the best possible outcomes. I believe in using evidence-based practices that are supported by research, and I work closely with my patients to develop personalized treatment plans that are tailored to their specific needs. Empathy is also a key component of my approach to patient care. I believe that every patient deserves to be treated with compassion and respect, and I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental environment where my patients feel comfortable sharing their experiences, emotions, and struggles. I take the time to listen carefully to my patients and to get to know them as individuals so that I can provide the most effective care possible. Finally, I am committed to providing culturally sensitive care to diverse groups of people. I believe that mental health is influenced by a wide range of factors, including cultural background, and I work to develop treatment plans that are sensitive to each patient's unique cultural beliefs and values. In addition to using evidence-based practices, I also utilize holistic approaches to care that take into account the whole person, including their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Feel at ease during our first session as we get to know each other.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

One of the primary treatment methods that I utilize is medication management. In addition to medication management, I also utilize a range of psychotherapeutic interventions to help my patients achieve their mental health goals. These may include cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, interpersonal therapy, and other evidence-based approaches. Holistic approaches to care are also an important part of my practice. I believe that mental health is influenced by a wide range of factors, including physical health, social support, and spiritual well-being. I work closely with my patients to address all aspects of their health and well-being, and I may incorporate techniques such as mindfulness, relaxation exercises, and lifestyle modifications into the treatment plan.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I'm experienced at assessing, diagnosing, and treating individuals with a wide range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and PTSD. I understand the unique challenges that trauma survivors face and have developed specialized skills in treating trauma-related disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dissociative disorders, and complex trauma. I create a safe and supportive environment for my patients, helping them to heal from their past experiences and build resilience for the future. My patients appreciate my non-judgmental approach and ability to listen and understand their unique experiences.
