My services are rooted in Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT).

Sarah Katula

PhD, APRN Advanced Practice Nurse – Psychiatry Associate Professor

The role of an Advanced Practice Nurse in Psychiatry is, in part, prescribing needed medications. I prescribe Psychotropic medications for adults. Medications can stabilize moods, help one to focus, decrease anxiety, and provide enhanced feelings of wellbeing. When thinking is clearer and mood is stable, your work with a therapist can be enhanced.

Rebecca Muir

Intern

I am currently attending Tulane University in Louisiana online for my MSW program. Tulane’s School of Social Work training has given me a broad understanding of several therapy approaches that I use with clients. I love incorporating mindfulness-based strategies during therapy and encourage clients to use them outside of sessions to help create a more peaceful, joy-filled life.
