"Hey there, I'm Adaeze but you can call me Dr. Dez
I am a board certified, doctorally prepared nurse practitioner, currently practicing primary and psychiatric care.
Your mental health diagnosis does not define you, there is far more to what makes you, YOU!
There are five main aspects of personal health: physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and intellectual. It is essential for none of these areas to be neglected to achieve wellness.
Medication alone is not a cure but rather another tool to help manage your symptoms. Medications for mental health should not change who you are, but instead create a foundation to improve your mental health and wellness. So let's build a positive relationship with them.
I will work with you to find a therapeutic regimen for mental health diagnoses such as anxiety, depression, mood, sleep, eating and obsessive/compulsive disorders.
I believe in collaborative care, medication management along with therapy will produce the most significant therapeutic outcomes.
I want to work with you on this journey to reach a positive life balance in this safe space.
Note: I currently do not provide medication management for severe mental illnesses (SMI); psychotic disorders, major depression with psychotic symptoms, treatment-resistant depression, personality disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). I do not provide benzos for primary or solo management of anxiety disorders. Also, I am not accepting children or teens at this time."
