Esder Shin, PMHNP, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Taking Charge of Your Health

“I specialize in outpatient treatment of mood disorders in children, adolescents and adults. I strongly believe that mental health involves physical, environmental, emotional, spiritual, and cultural systems that are all interconnected. I identify each person as his or her unique self and take on a collaborative approach working as partners to achieve optimal health.”

“Treatment may involve working together in individualized sessions or referrals will be made to other healthcare professionals, if appropriate, to provide the best possible care. I provide a warm and judgment-free environment that allows you to express your questions and concerns at your own pace. My goal is to work in a partnership with you to identify your strengths and acknowledge areas for improvement in order to encourage your best self.”
