When people have tried therapy for anxiety or depressive disorders without success, maybe it is time to complement the treatment modality with medications either as short or long term therapy. However there are diagnoses (Bipolar/Schizophrenia/Schizoaffective) that should be treated with medications then complemented with therapies as a mainstay. Karoweso Chipendo helps her clients across the lifespan choose medications that fit their treatment modalities and their personal needs. No approach is similar as every patient is unique. Using a collaborative approach with our team of physicians, nurses, care counsellor's and therapists, we deliver well rounded mental health care. Her educational background includes a Master's Degree in Family Nurse Practice APRN-FNP BC and Post Master's Certificate in Psychiatry APRN-PMHNP BC from Maryville University.

No matter what day it is, she always try to find something to cheer her up.
