Although carefully chosen medications can quickly achieve much needed relief of anxiety, depression, insomnia and trauma symptoms, a thorough evaluation can also identify many opportunities for improvement without medications. The most effective treatment plan may include work-life balance, nutrition and sleep strategies, addressing, avoiding or adapting to triggers, in addition to multiple psychotherapies. When needed, medications with the lowest side effects, easiest to use, most predictably effective & not addictive are recommended. Ultimately, it is up to each person to decide which strategies they will use to achieve wellness.

I graduated from the Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner graduate program at Walden University with a 3.5 GPA. My previous experience includes 13 years of nursing experience in various fields including pediatrics, nephrology, critical care nursing, and cardiac catheterization. Due to the lack of resources in my rural community, I often provided inpatient psychiatric services at my hometown hospital. I believe in and strive to provide psychiatric care to individuals with empathy and compassion. My life endeavor for all individuals is to dispel the stigma surrounding mental health.
