Connie Yip, NP in Psychiatry
I am a board-certified, Columbia trained psychiatric nurse practitioner (NP) who provides therapy and prescribes medication for adults and adolescents with a variety of therapeutic needs. These needs may be related to depression, anxiety, oppositional defiance, ADHD, stressful life transitions, loss, and relationship issues. I have a particular interest in individual, couples, and group therapy for new mothers, parents who have children with special needs, and the LGBTQ community.
My approach is to work with you and/or your family in a pragmatic way to help you find a balance between your professional, personal, and family life. Depending on your situation, you may prefer concrete, pragmatic strategies over therapy. In that case, coaching or attending a group to meet others in a similar situation may be more suitable for you. Depending on the situation, we can expand our work together or possibly include other trusted colleagues in your treatment.
Drawing from my years of experience working with adolescents, adults, and families in hospitals, schools, and residential treatment centers, I will work with you to figure out an individualized plan that fits into your daily life.
Beyond providing therapy and assistance with medication , my intent is to help you achieve overall wellness through an integrated approach, which may encompass meditation, nutrition, exercise, and behavioral changes.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have. I look forward to discussing the best way for us to work together.
