As a board-certified child and adolescent nurse practitioner with over 21 years of experience, I have had the privilege of addressing the broad range of psychiatric issues that occur in clients. Usually, in the initial session, the parents will give pertinent information that will lead to my understanding the context in which the client lives and the presenting problems. On a different day, the second part of the diagnostic evaluation, the client is asked about his or her concerns.

I have been in the mental health field for over 30 years and am continually impressed by the strength of the human spirit. I am open minded and don't have any preconceptions about an individual or the problems they present with when I meet them at their first visit. Psychiatric services are more difficult to find than ever before while modern day stress has increased demand for quality services. I feel strongly that psychiatric assistance should be easier to find than it is. I also believe that people from all backgrounds, financial circumstances and with varied problems should have equal access to quality mental health care.

To create the kind of practice I want for patients, I operate a full-service, "concierge" psychiatry practice, as opposed to an insurance-driven one. This allows me to focus on quality over quantity, and on personalized service and accessibility over volume. Most importantly, I have fewer patients than an insurance-driven practice, which means I have more time for you. We will have ample time during your visit to discuss your concerns. I am also much more accessible between visits for your phone calls and emails.
