I've been working as a Board Certified Psychiatrist for over 15 years, and throughout that time I've been most interested in working with individuals who struggle with addiction or co-occurring illnesses. I am able to provide my clients with outpatient detoxification from alcohol and opioids as long as safety criteria are met. Evidence shows people are most likely to achieve recovery through a combination of medications and counseling. When you come to Elevate, you can have all of your needs met under one roof: Medication Management, Outpatient Detox, Individual Therapy, Group Therapy and IOP.

I am a patient, empathic and introspective practitioner, and I view clients in a holistic manner. I believe in a team approach and engaging together with my client to find optimal solutions to their mental health concerns and come up with a treatment plan that embraces all facets of a client's life. I am a prudent and meticulous prescriber of medication when clinically indicated and feel that medication can provide a useful purpose in delivering relief to clients. I also believe that both medication and therapy are most effective together.

I am accepting new clients for medication management and certification for medical marijuana in my Thomaston office and virtually. I have been a nurse for almost 25 years. I spent almost all of my professional career working in the mental health field. One thing became very apparent over the years is there were not enough providers to meet the demands of our community. In 2014 I decided to pursue my Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner degree and graduated in 2016. In 2018 I began my private practice as a small part time venture and have since grown to a full time private practice.
