Everybody has a unique story.
I specialize in treating adults 18 years and older. Managing your mental health needs can be best met by looking at medications that will help reduce your symptoms to a point where you then have the mental energy to create spaces for your wellbeing and learn new skills for this chapter in your life. My approach is to utilize evidence-based therapy interventions alongside medications to decrease the severity of mental health symptoms that are impacting your quality of life. My most successful patients are those who are motivated to change and value a personalized approach to treatment.
PMAD (perinatal mood & anxiety disorders)
I believe in combining therapy with medication for more effective relief of moderate-to-severe psychiatric symptoms.
Prospective patients must all complete the psychiatric intake and assessment. Subsequent treatment options are provided below and will depend on your specific treatment plan.
$375 | 90 min session
We'll discuss treatment goals, psychiatric history, physical health, current medications, and past medication trials. Dr. Sheldon will provide an initial diagnostic impression and collaborate with you to create a treatment plan. The more open and honest you can be in a session will increase the likelihood we are able to find a successful treatment path for you. This session will be your longest single session.
(Required for all prospective patients)
Ongoing Medication Management & Therapy
$225 | 50 min follow up sessions
You can expect part of the time to be spent discussing medications currently prescribed and if adjustments need to be made. The bulk of the time will be focused on individualized therapy.
(Frequency can be weekly or at least once a month)
Medication Management Only
$150 | 20-25 min follow up sessions
(If you are involved in therapy elsewhere and a release of information from your therapist has been provided.)
We'll focus the conversation on your current medications and any adjustments that need to be made. As we are adjusting your medications you should expect to be seen anywhere from every other week to monthly initially and once stable on medications at a minimum of once a quarter.
$60 | each 15 min
(For existing clients only and discussed on a case-by-case basis. This would be used for support outside of appointment time and document preparation.)
Dr. Sheldon will let you know on a case-by-case basis if she is willing and able to fill out any requested paperwork and the anticipated time she will need to complete the paperwork before we agree to having it done so that you can anticipate the cost of these requests.
What to expect at your first appointment
Treatment always starts with an intake where we look at your unique needs and what mental health and well-being mean to you. This gives your treatment direction and allows me to tailor your treatment to your goals.
I believe in taking the time to get to know my patients, which includes getting to know their background, cultural contexts, current life situations, support networks, future goals, and what wellness really looks like for them so that we can create realistic and sustainable treatment goals that enhance their lives rather than feel like just another obligation.
During this appointment, we also ensure that both patient and provider feel we're a good fit. After the initial assessment, we'll discuss ongoing treatment options.

An Important Note
Who I Don't Treat
Before you schedule your appointment it's important to note that I do not treat individuals younger than age 18, individuals currently living in nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities, individuals with active primary substance use disorders, individuals seeking disability evaluations, individuals without insurance (this is to ensure you have access to the recommended medications and lab monitoring), or individuals on Medicaid (Colorado laws require you to receive in-network care).
