Providing Mental Health Services for Children & Adolescents
My practice is primarily with children and adolescents. As a nurse practitioner specializing in mental health, I am licensed in Oregon to diagnose, provide therapy, and to prescribe medications for mental health conditions. I am certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I do not provide legal opinions, do evaluations for disability or testify about your child's condition. Because I limit my practice to children their waiting time for an appointment is usually very reasonable.
I have additional training in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Hypnotherapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Neurolinguistic programing (NLP). Your treatment plan may include these options, however therapy is more frequently referred to a qualified therapist
I am a preferred provider for BC/BS, MODA/ODS/OEBB, PEBB/Providence, Pacific Source, Reliant, Optum or UBH . My services are covered by several other insurance companies on single case agreements. Please contact your insurance company if you have questions about coverage and benefits.
