I’ve found no greater purpose than helping patients restore or build a new life through treating mental illness. I find immense joy in seeing someone restored to their family and friends, helping a depressed person feel again, or helping an anxious person find peace. The number one rule in medicine is “First, do no harm,” and while I agree with that, I have a second rule that I feel is no less important – that is, “do some good.” As your mental health provider, I will seek to “do some good” in your life to help you experience lasting healing and hope.
My Goal as a Christian Psychiatric Care Provider
My goal is to provide the medical support you need in order for the true you to return and thrive. After assessing your condition, I strive to get you to a better spot, then build on that progress little by little over time. I find that most patients get the full benefit of treatment at lower than recommended doses of medication, keeping in mind that the true you will not come to life if you’re over medicated.
What I Offer as a Christian Psychiatric Care Provider
My appointment time with you is my highest priority. I listen intently to every word, caring for you as an individual made in the image of God. By hearing and understanding your experience, I’ll seek to figure out what changes are necessary in order to make your medications better support the life you want. Whether you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, or some other mental health struggle, I am here to help to the best of my ability.
My Approach to Christian Psychiatric Care
Some patients don’t want a “label,” but for my purposes you need one and for your purposes you want it to be the right one. The medications I prescribe are specific to a condition. Most of the time, if patients aren’t benefitting from their medication, either the dose is wrong, or the provider is treating the wrong condition. Many patients who come to me have given up on getting better because “the meds” don’t work, but they don’t realize that the real problem is the meds were designed to treat a condition they don’t have. I’ll help you determine the correct diagnosis and find the right prescription and dosage to promote a vibrant life.
