Sandra R. Pelaez-Munsey, APRN, PMHNP
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
(English / Spanish)
As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, my approach to mental health care is holistic and patient-centered in nature. I respect the autonomy of my patients and promote aligned treatment goals and collaboration in practice. I work with children, adolescents and adults exhibiting a wide range of psychiatric symptoms and stressors. I use evidence-based treatments to improve self-efficacy and restore a sense of equilibrium.
I am described as genuine, practical, and direct with a healthy side of humor. I specialize in Anxiety Disorder, Depression, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder and Geriatric Mental Health. I conduct psychiatric evaluations, provide medication management and when appropriate provide solution-focused psychotherapeutic interventions based on CBT, DBT and MI principles.
Types of Therapy Specialties:
Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Medication Management Therapy
Do you experience mood swings, debilitating anxiety, or depression that prevents you from living your life to the fullest? Have you tried making lifestyles changes and integrating positive coping strategies into your daily routine, but find that you are still distressed and in need of relief?
Many people across the world take or have taken medication for their emotional or psychological health. In some instances, medication helps to stabilize a particular issue and may even be a vital tool in recovery. Lotus Counseling Center provides you with reliable assessment and appropriate adjustment recommendations for mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. With the support of your prescribing doctor and primary care physician, we can also support you in the process of gradually reducing and eventually ceasing your medication. For any questions or concerns you have regarding your medication, we are here to help!
