Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, DNP, PMHNP

I am an integrative practitioner who can assess biochemistry to identify important deficiencies/abnormalities that may be related to mental health symptoms. I can also provide genetic testing for medication management. Patients often seek integrative/"functional" psychiatry after they have trialed multiple medications, experienced unpleasant/unremitting side effects, and have not been able to obtain symptom alleviation with traditional psychiatry. I believe strongly in psychotherapy to help the patient work towards heailng. I work collaboratively with other team members and value this part of treatment.

As a board certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I have worked with patients across the lifespan, treating a variety of Psychiatric disorders; addiction, mood disorders, trauma, schizophrenia, PTSD, dementia, and many more. I focus on practicing in a holistic approach, while also collaborating with other disciplines to rule out medical issues to provide my patients with the best outcomes possible. I believe family plays a big role in the patients care and try to include them in the plan of treatment as much as possible. My goal is to treat each individual with compassion and professionalism across all levels of care.
