Her experience working with teenagers inspired her to return to get a certification in Psychiatry.

She has had experience working with the Integration Model of mental health and primary care. She was a psychiatric clinician in a college setting for 7 years.  Ms. Drury has also worked in inpatient care treating major mental illness, substance abuse, and mood disorders. 

Her philosophy of care is based on listening to the patient, treating the whole person, respecting the individual, involving the family in treatment when possible and engendering trust.
