Headway

Melissa

Hi and welcome! I'm a Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with over 10 years of experience both clinically and as an educator. I have significant inpatient experience in neurological symptom illness, trauma, and pain management, which greatly informs my outpatient psychiatric medication management practice where I enjoy treating mood and behavioral disorders including but not limited to ADD, ADHD.


Whats unique about receiving care from a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner is that I offer both medication management and therapy services combined in one session, so you only need to see one provider. Pairing therapy and medication to treat depression and anxiety can also help you feel better faster with a 60% improved chance of recovery.


Working with me means working with our amazing practice - Lavender - which is an online psychiatry and therapy office providing a range of modern mental health services from the comfort of home.


At Lavender we believe that psychiatric care shouldn't be expensive, intimidating or impossible to access. We are committed to providing care that is backed by science with a team of friendly providers that go the extra mile for you.


Your time is extremely valuable, we pride ourselves on being super transparent & responsive. For my most accurate and up to date availability, please check and book through our office website directly at www.joinlavender.com


You may also connect with us by phone, text, or email if you have any questions either through Headway or by contacting hello@joinlavender.com / 855.444.7258
