Hi. I'm Tess. I am a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with Kemet Health. I have been working in psychiatry as a PNP for 13+ yrs. I love my work because it offers me the opportunity to help patients make a real difference in their lives. I am very open, attentive, and believe most patients can "captain their own ship." I'm just the "first mate," offering advice and guidance. I often check for underlying causes for disease processes such as depression and anxiety through labs or referrals, if indicated, before prescribing medication for symptoms.
Utilize a more holistic approach to health care, assisting patients with positive adjustments in lifestyle changes such as exercise, diet, and sleep hygiene. I also utilize brief therapy techniques with each appointment to help patients set a navigational compass for health and happiness. Sincerely look forward to working with you on your healthcare journey!
