Message to clients

In psychiatry, I’ve found that talking about “mental health problems” can feel like speaking a new language for many people. It can be daunting to recognize the issues and seek help. With Ripple Healthcare, my mission is to create a safe space to be vulnerable and non-judgemental. To do so, I provide my clients with a psychiatrist that listens to the whole story—one that carefully explains each step of their treatment, gently guiding them through with ongoing support. I am aware that my patients may not be familiar with medication treatment options. Keeping this in mind, I always create space for them to feel safe and explore their options towards healing. With every patient I take on, I am committed to working through their problems until they reach a positive shift in their mental health and overall wellbeing.
