Are you feeling overwhelmed by stressful life events and finding it difficult to function in your day to day life? Current life events have highlighted the need for increased access to mental health care. Mental illness can affect all aspects of life if not treated. As a dual certified family nurse practitioner and psychiatric nurse practitioner, I've seen how untreated depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder and other illnesses contribute to poor health outcomes and decreased quality of life. For these reasons, I'm passionate about helping clients to get prompt diagnosis and treatment so they can live life to the fullest.
