Hello, I look forward to meeting you! I'm a Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with over 10 years of nursing experience both clinically and as an educator. I have significant inpatient experience in neurological symptom illness, trauma, and pain management, which greatly informs my outpatient psychiatric medication management practice where I treat mood disorders and behavioral disorders including ADD and ADHD. I work with an amazing group of colleagues at Lavender, an online psychiatry and therapy office, where we believe psychiatric care shouldn't be expensive nor impossible to access.
