Sharon in our office Wednesday and Thursday, please give the office a call to set up an appointment or if you have any questions.
I offer Psychiatric/Mental Health services-assessment, diagnosis and treatment for individuals, couples, and families who are being faced with psychiatric disorders or significant life stressors that are disturbing.
As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, my role is similar to and can overlap with Psychologists, Social Workers, or Psychiatrists. Like me, all three of these may do psychotherapy or counseling, but only a psychiatrist or Nurse Practitioner can prescribe and manage medications as well. But the main difference is the Nursing emphasis, which is a more energetic, holistic, neurobiological, health-promoting, and psychoeducational model of care and intervention.
I have practiced in a wide variety of settings: homes, hospitals, Home Health Nursing Organizations, training seminars, a college, university and Alternative Health Institute, and for the last 35 years in office as a private practitioner. My commitment to bring a wealth of experience and focused healing uplifts my patients and their families.
With over 40 years of experience in the Psychiatric/Mental Health field, I know that when I bring a lightness of heart and a significant healing Presence to my clients, it empowers their own physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health!
Laughing with my clients is one of my greatest gifts to ease the suffering and bring a change of perspective that is nourishing and unburdening. I know the inherent strength of clients, even when they are unaware themselves, and I allow a new perception to arise of their true nature that can be a starting point for recovery or stabilization. I give them a chance to identify their strengths and wisdom, face their struggles with another, find original solutions, and practice new thinking and behaviors for a brighter Future.
I am certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a Psychiatric/Mental Health Clinical Specialist, licensed as an Advanced Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, and graduated with a Master’s of Science in Nursing from Pennsylvania State University. Many insurances accepted.
COME & SEE ME…YOU’LL FEEL BETTER!
