About Me

My name is Dr. Novellyn Heard. Welcome to my Web page.


I chose to become a psychiatrist because I wanted to help people with mental illness lead healthy lives. I've been an adult outpatient psychiatrist at Kaiser Permanente for five years.

About my practice

I work as part of a team of many different types of doctors, to help you stay healthy. I believe that it is important for you to learn about your illness, coping skills, and the role of medications.

How I thrive

My goal is to employ the same stress management techniques that we teach our patients in our department. I try to exercise, travel, enjoy my hobbies, and live a spiritually balanced life.
