As a Nurse Practitioner in Mental Health, with an emphasis on holistic treatment, I provide a calm and therapeutic environment for people who have problems with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and PTSD.

Medications can sometimes assist in treating these conditions and, as a Nurse Practitioner, I am licensed to prescribe them when needed.

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, MSN, PMHNP
As a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), I am trained in evidence based and trauma informed treatment models that address the concerns of the entire patient, we are more than just a diagnosis or a grouping of symptoms. I believe that collaboration with the patient and building holistic therapeutic interventions is the foundation of a patient focused approach to addressing the behavioral health concerns of individuals seeking mental health care. The quality of our mental health directly impacts the quality of our lives, and you deserve to have a good life which starts with a healthy relationship with yourself.
