ATTENTION DEFICIT MEDICATION MANAGEMENT
Adults and Adolescents
Welcome to our Office!
Attention deficit is not a disease or a disorder. It is a difference in neurological wiring. People with these patterns are usually highly creative but lead chaotic lives. In my office, I help patients to gain a better understanding of how to create effective skill sets to empower their lives through the use of education, personal-skills, and medication.
What to Expect
I have over 35 years of experience as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. My office appointments always include counseling. We will explore your personal situation and needs so I can properly diagnose how best to help you.
I understand the importance of continued care for work and productivity, so my clients can rely on me for emergency coverage and I keep my practice small and responsive. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment as a new patient.
In the first session, we will assess your situation and determine a diagnosis. We will also discuss your options and ensure that you have the information needed to make informed decisions. If diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, patients may leave this appointment with a prescription and a medication plan. It is important that each person finds the most effective medication and dose to accomplish their goals. In the next session, we will assess how medication is working for you.
"Children and adults with ADD/ADHD can focus very well on a few activities that intensely interest them, yet be unable to focus adequately on most other tasks of daily life." - Thomas E. Brown, Ph.D.
