My Bio

As a Family Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), I have experience working with people across the lifespan.  My experience includes the treatment of a wide range of mental health concerns including Psychotic Disorders, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety Disorders, and Addictions.  I understand the complexity that life experiences can have on an individual’s life and I strive to provide trauma-informed care.  

My services include psychiatric evaluations and medication management with special attention to each individual’s needs and concerns.  In doing so, I pay special attention to each client’s personal history, specific contexts, history stressful or traumatic life experiences, and concerns about medications.   It is my goal to always demonstrate patience, warmth, and understanding in my approach to treatment planning and mental health education.  Lastly, and perhaps most importantly for some, I understand how difficult it can be to discuss mental health concerns. We will work at your preferred pace and hopefully become partners in your journey to wellness.
