With over a decade of working in behavioral health, I continue to become inspired by witnessing the amazing strength and motivation that each person holds in bettering their lives. I take pride in supporting clients in their journey to wellness and improved mental health. I firmly believe in holistic treatment, addressing the health of the mind, body and spirit. Through thoughtful use of medication, psychotherapy, and education, I aspire to design a treatment plan that fits each person’s lifestyle and personal beliefs. I also evaluate nutritional status as this can be an important component of treatment.
I am a Doctorate prepared Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. I started working in behavioral health in 2005 and continued my education until I earned my doctorate. Throughout this time, I have worked in various settings & with all ages, spending time helping those with eating disorders, substance abuse, treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, impulse control disorders, psychosis, and adolescent mental health. I truly feel called to this profession and appreciate being a part of each person’s journey in their progression towards improved mental wellbeing.
