"I enjoy practicing patient centered care. Allowing the patient to understand their treatment options and tailoring treatment based on each individual is vital when it comes to mental health treatment. Some individuals thrive with use of additional resources like individual and group therapy, in addition to medication management. I really enjoy educating the patients about their diagnosis and the symptoms and triggers that can affect them."
