My Philosophy

My practice, at Balance Psychiatry & Mental Health, is both an Art and a Science and that means I will combine my wisdom, creativity, compassion, and healing spirit with the most up to date Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) in psychiatry, psychopharmacology and psychotherapeutic modalities to partner with you to meet your personal and unique psychiatric and mental health goals.

Theories I draw from include, but are not limited to:

  • Transtheoretical Model of Change
  • The Recovery Model
  • Humanistic Theory
  • Attachment Theory
  • Existential Theory
  • Psychodynamic Theory
  • Interpersonal Theory
  • Social Learning Theory
  • Acceptance and Commitment Theory
  • Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development
  • Erik Erikson’s Theory of Psychosocial Development

My philosophy as a Psychiatric & Mental Health Nurse Practitioner includes:

  • demonstrating respect and clear boundaries in the patient-centered therapeutic relationship
  • maintaining professional and personal self-awareness
  • fostering a healing space of equality, diversity, inclusivity and individuality to patients of diverse backgrounds and ages
  • empowering patients toward drawing on their inner resources
  • engaging with patients in collaborative and positive ways

It is an honor to continue the legacy of the "healers" in my life and help you on your journey.
