Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Phyllis Pinard "***I am Board Certified Mental Health/Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner ***

Psychiatric Medication Management is an art; and for over 9 years I have treated children and adolescents at a Children's Psychiatric Center. I also have experience working with Adults for the past 10 years.   With the utilization of both brief psychotherapy and/or medication management; I have worked successfully with Adults, Adolescents and Children who have psychiatric issues of Depression, Anxiety, Sleep Difficulties, ADHD, Behavioral Disorders, OCD, Eating Disorders; Mood Disorders, Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia.

***Treating Anxiety Disorders is a passion of mind and I have successfully treated adults; and successfully worked with children who have anxiety with related school refusal.***                                        

***I am now utilizing Genetic Testing. This is a process that can help identify the most potentially helpful psychotropic medication treatment options based upon ones individual Genetic makeup.

***My practice is small and personal. I make it a point to return calls promptly. My patients know they can contact me via text or phone if need be.  

***Please feel free to call for a telephone consultation if you feel I may be of service to you or a loved one."
