Meet Our Medication Prescriber

Dr. Marine is a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with over 25 years of experience working in behavioral health in the Tucson, Arizona community.  He is originally from Southern California but chose to make Tucson his permanent home in 1995.  He has worked in the inpatient setting over the years at several local hospitals, most recently Cornerstone Behavioral Health.  He was employed at CODAC Health, Recovery & Wellness and completed his outpatient residencies at CODAC and Arizona’s Children Association.

Dr. Marine believes in care of the whole patient – mind, body, and spirit. He practices individualized care and understands that every client is different. He has a genuine interest in helping his clients feel better so they can live each day to their full potential. Dr. Marine is caring, compassionate, and takes the time to get to know each of his clients so he can best help them. He practices patient centered care and believes in the team approach working alongside other health and wellness experts and the most important member of the team, the client. Dr. Marine adheres to symptom base prescribing, which means he tailors treatments to meet the needs of the client and does not simply prescribe based on diagnosis. 

Dr. Marine is an equal opportunity provider for clients ages 5 and up, including older adults.
