Maybe you're trans/non-binary/gender-nonconforming and are tired of explaining everything to prescribers. Perhaps you're anxious or depressed about app dating or a recent kink or OnlyFans effort. Maybe, you're not out (or fully out) and need medication to help the anxiety.

My approach to psychiatry is based on the principle that the human spirit is resilient and has the ability to heal when supported. With that in mind, I use an integrative approach to help my patients achieve greater mental health and well-being. I work with individuals who have depression, anxiety, unresolved traumas, concentration difficulties, unfulfilling relationships, and career and academic difficulties transform their challenges into personal growth and self-realization. I seek to help people live healthy and meaningful lives.

I diagnose and treat adults and adolescents with all psychiatric illnesses. However, I don’t get hung up on labels and diagnoses. My patients describe me as authentic because I treat each person as an individual with their own specific symptoms and needs. I am committed to providing a safe space for LGBTQIA+ patients. I am a Board-Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) and have worked in psychiatry for over six years. I earned my BSN and MSN from The George Washington University. While I primarily do medication management, I am also trained in DBT and existential therapy.

My patients want a kind, experienced doctor that listens deeply and non-judgmentally, partners with them, offers and explains options, and considers their physical and spiritual needs as well. Many are searching for their center, where we have work we love to do, the world needs, we are good at, and that we can make a living doing. I am most successful with, but not limited to, entrepreneurs and people in creative fields such as visual art, music, theatre, writing, and design. I want to help you to be healthy in a broad sense, to feel good, be connected, find meaning, live sustainably, and nurture creativity.
