The hummingbird symbolizes love, joy and beauty. Its unique ability to fly backward teaches us that we can look back at our past without dwelling there but continuing forward.
The hummingbird's aptitude to hover while drinking nectar reminds us to savor each moment, appreciating its sweetness.
Welcome to Laura Donnell's
Approach to Integrative Mental Health
A first step in any treatment plan is the establishment of rapport and trust. When this is provided in a confidential, nonjudgmental and compassionate communication style, it offers positive guidance to alleviate distress and
help you achieve your goals.
Laura treats mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and ADHD in adolescents and adults. Whether you are interested in seeking assistance with psychiatric services for the first time, finding a medication prescriber who can continue a prescribed treatment regimen, or a second opinion on treatment options, Laura is available to help. Many people can suffer unnecessarily because they have been improperly diagnosed or undiagnosed altogether for many known mental health issues.
There are many different types of treatment modalities that can help you achieve your goals. Laura offers an integrative approach toward wellness that is evidenced-based. Prescribing medications to help alleviate your suffering, when appropriate and safe, and can often work quickly and effectively.
Medications are never solely relied upon for a person to heal. We will also utilize other treatment modalities, such as nutrition modification, sleep hygiene, physical fitness, and individual therapy. Research has shown each of these interventions to be effective in the treatment of depression and anxiety.
