With 30+ years of medical/nursing education and experience followed by board certification in medical psychiatry, I am an Evanston - based APRN-CNP PMHNP-BC at Silver Sage Psychiatry and here to help my community with your mental health needs.
A full assessment includes all mental, behavioral, and physical symptoms before diagnosis, this can include laboratory testing, or other testing as well. Then, together we will develop a personalized treatment plan for you. I am able to prescribe medication, and will also recommend psychological treatment as appropriate, and refer to a local counselor or therapist. I also advise on lifestyle changes that may help with some symptoms. Referrals from your primary care provider are gladly accepted, but not needed; you may self refer. We work with all local providers and the local behavioral health clinics.
