About

As a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner, I can provide high quality, affordable mental health care for your child without a long wait. My approach to care is collaborative, which means that you will ALWAYS have an active voice in the treatment. Not all mental health concerns require medication, of course, but if we do decide that medication may be helpful, my philosophy is always to "start LOW and go SLOW." My goal is to help your child achieve full remission of symptoms and an optimal level of functioning with as little medication as possible.
One of the advantages of seeing a psychiatric nurse practitioner is that we can provide both individual and family therapy (as social workers, counselors, and psychologists do) as well as medication management services (as psychiatrists do), often at less than 50% of the cost of visiting a psychiatrist.
I work with children and adolescents, and am currently accepting new patients. Call today to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation to learn how I might be able to help you or your family.
