I am a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with 6+ years of critical care experience from working in the Intensive Care Unit. It is there, where I discovered my interest in psychiatry and realized just how under-served the mental health population is. My compassion for others coupled with my interest in psychiatry is what prompted me to pursue my degree as a nurse practitioner. My goal is get patients back to living life the way they did before they were affected by mental illness.
I am able to do psychotherapy as well as manage medications. I have a firm belief that psychotherapy is just as important as medication management to maximize recovery of mental health disorders, just as therapy is with any other health condition. Psychotherapy is rehab for the brain just as cardiac rehab is rehab for the heart.
I am accepting new clients ages 6+ with a wide range of mental health conditions including (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, and adjustment disorders. Together, my patient’s and I will come up with a treatment plan that best meets his/her individual needs and gets him/her back to the life he/she once enjoyed.
