Hi. my name is Menbi. I am a psychiatrist nurse practitioner. I graduated with my master's from National University and I have been treating patients with both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology for the last two years. I have worked in several settings from hospital, to outpatient, to remote and even in prison settings. I have treated patients with different mental health issues. I believe in holistic treatment. I am compassionate and dedicated to my client's well-being.

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

In the first session, we will work together to find out problem areas. We will then assign priorities to each problem area. We will also discuss goals of treatment. We will set up measurable goals. We will also discuss ways we would improve if goals are not met. We will discuss treatment options and choose ones that fit your values and beliefs.

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

Working with many clients, I have come to realize listening is my greatest strength.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT is a psychotherapy based on the theory that our unhealthy behavior and emotions are a result of our distorted thinking. CBT focuses on identifying the distorted with the aim of improving mental health. I have used CBT effectively in treatment of clients with depression, alcohol dependency, drug dependency and social anxiety

Compassion Focused

I have used compassion focused treatment to treat patients who have been victims of domestic abuse
