Dr. Boan has been licensed as the 2nd Prescribing Psychologist in the state of Illinois. Her approach to treatment involves a combination of biological, psychological, and philosophical principles to better understand behavioral, cognitive and neurological functioning. This framework allows for a thorough conceptualization of a person’s personality, history, health, and assessment performance. Ultimately this conceptualization guides medical and holistic treatment recommendations, which will help the individual person and his/her family. She believes that treatment is most successful when holistic approaches are combined with medical interventions. She also believes that treatment should include interventions that will lead to immediate success, but also lifestyle changes that allow an individual to lead his/her best life.
