Dawn Sims, MSN, APRN

I have thirty-four years in mental health nursing of which nine are as Advance Practice Nurse in Psychiatry. I provide assessment, diagnosis and medication management and/or adjustment of your medications to help you reach your mental wellness goals. I am eager to help determine the best treatment for your particular condition, with the fewest risk of side effects. I was once told by a very successful psychiatrist whom I worked with closely; you must have the 3 As, available, able and affable. I am available and flexible on my schedule. I am able to look at your situation and help your reach your goals. I feel I am affable: I use a lot of humor and real-life examples of how medications can hinder or help you. We can make a plan together and work hard to help your feel more relaxed, energized and hopeful and less worry, stress and anxious.
