Honest and truthful, willing to use therapy and medication management. Able to work together towards goals. I worked as an RN in the ER for 10 years before completing my training as a PMHNP. I feel like I have strengths in medication education, high anxiety situations, and particularly the aging older adult population. Before I started as a PMHNP, I worked 10 years in acute care nursing. During this time Covid-19 hit and medical teams were experiencing high rates of depression, anxiety, and suicide.
