If a person is depressed, anxious, or have another mental health concern, they are more likely to not take care of themselves in other ways. This realization helped to make my decision to become a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner in 2021. As a clinician, there is no better feeling than changing someone's life and playing a part in their happiness. Common diagnoses that I prefer treating include depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. Ultimately, I enjoy helping clients with any problem that they have and working to improve their lives and mental state; together.

I treat patients who suffer from depression and anxiety. I see Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) as a safe treatment with limited side effects that can create lasting improvement for patients, especially for patients who have not found a medication regiment that provides the relief they seek.
