APRN, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
My passion is helping people function better in all areas of their lives, including relationships, families, and careers. I use a collaborative approach with clients, working together to find ways of making change. In our first sessions together, we will develop a path forward for regaining joy and meaning in your life.
I look forward to meeting you.
I am a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, which, more simply, means that I have a masters degree in psychiatric nursing. I am licensed to diagnose and treat mental health issues with therapy and medication. My nursing background has allowed me to employ a person-centered approach, which we will use to help treat the whole individual, rather than just the problem. Together, we will identify strengths and weaknesses, finding individualized ways to support goals of mental wellness.
Our time together is private and confidential. I take great pride in ensuring a nonjudgmental environment while working with clients from a wide diversity of backgrounds and experiences. My experience includes providing care to veterans, prisoners, children & adolescents, older adults, people struggling with substance use, those experiencing homelessness, and adults with severe and persistent mental illness.
