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.
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.
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.
