I am a licensed, board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, performing outpatient psychiatric diagnosis and prescription medication management since 2018. I work with patients across the lifespan, focusing on symptom management and remission. I have been in practice for four years, and prior to that I was an inpatient psychiatric nurse, a school nurse, and a community health nurse. I have an extensive network of colleagues across the country with whom I regularly consult, and I am consistently striving to learn the most current evidence based practices in psychiatry.
I believe everyone deserves exceptional, compassionate mental health care. I proudly welcome LBGTQIA+ individuals and would be honored to be trusted with your care. I also have an interest in helping adults and teens on the autism spectrum as well as those with ADHD achieve their best lives.
I currently have limited capacity for new patients; however, I encourage you to contact me to be placed on my waitlist as I will likely have openings in the next few weeks.
