I specialize in adolescents and adults dealing with the gamut of mental health issues, from substance abuse, schizophrenia, Bi-polar, trauma, anxiety, ADHD, depression, to situational factors arising as part of the human condition. I'm trained in traditional medicine but have expanded to integrate significant findings from Positive Psychology, nutritional and lifestyle approaches, neuro-scientific interventions and mind-body medicine. My 38 years working in-patient and in private practice has afforded me a wealth of experience. I have the utmost respect for those I work with and am not afraid to put my heart into what I do.

Her approach is conservative and evidence-based and she stays current with the latest developments in psychiatry and neuroscience. Research indicates that the best treatment response occurs when medication is combined with therapy, and as a nurse practitioner, she is very comfortable with, and believes strongly in, a multidisciplinary approach.
