PMHNP (Therapy and/or Medication)
Arnold is a psychiatric nurse practitioner trained at UCSF. As someone whose family member is thriving with mental illness, Arnold is deeply passionate about mental health care, in particular the dynamics of traumatic experiences and their impact on our relationships and how we choose to care for ourselves.
Trauma and PTSD
I believe we have a mind, body and spirit. As we grow and learn from childhood, and also as a result of biology, traumatic events or the environment surrounding us, we may develop patterns of thinking and habits that make it difficult to feel whole and satisfied with our lives. In a gentle, safe and systematic way I help to bring awareness, acceptance, learning and encouragement towards positive change. I specialize in the treatment of trauma using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR and relaxation techniques. As a UCSF trained practitioner, I also diagnose psychiatric disorders with the conservative use of medications for treatment.
