Melissa Stepien | Professional History

Melissa is a board-certified advanced practice psychiatric nurse with specialized training in child development, diagnostic assessment and medication management of children and adolescents. She decided to leave years of acute psychiatric care in premier mental health facilities to join integrated behavioral health that allows for early assessment and intervention using a collaborative approach. Melissa is available to provide consultative services to pediatricians regarding mental health treatment.

My approach to treatment includes acknowledging and respecting patients' and families' identity, beliefs and cultural values as well as understanding the importance of collaborating with community supports to improve treatment outcomes.
