Healing can occur as a result of the integration of mind, body and spirit. Lisa Sharf’s training is diverse, an aspect of her professional practice that allows her to treat each patient effectively as an individual. Today’s reality of economic hardship, personal loss, and feelings of being overwhelmed are coupled with incredible stress and anger. We all need to be heard and we all need a way to cope!
Just psycho-pharmacological treatment does not give the patient the best possible outcome.
As a nurse practitioner, I believe that each patient needs to be regarded holistically from a psycho-biological-spiritual perspective. In this way, I am able to help my patients reach their optimum level of health and wellness. To achieve this I spend the necessary time with each patient, evaluating their medical history and their current symptoms. I listen to their psycho-social and spiritual needs. Together with the proper diagnosis, I work together with each individual to develop the best treatment plan. This includes proper medications that will alleviate their symptoms and address their current diagnosis. We work together as a team developing a plan that each individual can adhere to comfortably.
My certification in Psychiatry and Mental Health allows me to help my patients from a psycho-biological point of view.
“I believe in promoting a healthy life style. I feel that good health is a fundamental human right. Each individual can take part in achieving this goal. The first step is to make a commitment to yourself.”
