"As a nurse practitioner, I believe that each patient needs to be regarded holistically from a psycho-
biological-spiritual perspective. I listen to their psychosocial 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."--Lisa Sharf

What is counseling? Counseling is collaborative process that involves the development of a confidential professional relationship that focuses on personal problems. People with a wide range of problems and concerns benefit from counseling. Anxiety, depression, relationship problems, difficulties with school or work, and identity questions are some reasons people come to see a counselor. A counseling session is an opportunity to talk to a mental health professional who is a skilled listener trained in the science of human behavior.
I am committed to providing compassionate, highest quality treatment and services to adult patientsfacing mental and emotional challenges. There are many challenges we all face in the 21st as adults. Some may be mental, physical, or emotional. Psychiatric services include developmental consultation and treatment, comprehensive assessment, medication evaluation, management, and ongoing follow up monitoring to help you deal with these challenges.
I use medications to treating mental disorders when necessary. The complexity of this field requires continuous study in order to keep current with new advances. Since the use of these medications is to treat mental disorders, an extensive understanding of basic neuroscience, basic psychopharmacology, clinical medicine, the differential diagnosis of mental disorders, and treatment options is required.
I offer evaluation and treatment for women suffering from mood disorders, with a special emphasis on hormonally-triggered mood disorders, including premenstrual, postpartum, and perimenopausal mood disorders. I treat women with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and intimacy and relationship issues.
DEPRESSION & ANXIETY
Depression is a serious behavioral health illness that can disrupt an individual’s professional, social and physical health. Signs of this common disorder include sleeping too much or too little; loss of interest in activities, friends and family; difficulty concentrating or making decisions; feelings of hopelessness and guilt; and/or preoccupation with death or thoughts of suicide. People who suffer from anxiety find themselves feeling uneasy, fearful and worried about real or perceived threats to their safety or well-being. Symptoms of anxiety include tension, rapid heartbeat, difficulty concentrating or falling asleep and irritability. Fortunately, both depression and anxiety can be treated successfully, with either medication, therapy, or a combination of the two.
