I am a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I have worked for many years treating behavioral health patients in the inpatient setting of a community hospital. I am currently working with individuals in private practice who seek support in dealing with symptoms which cause distress. By working collaboratively we can establish a plan, decrease your symptoms and assist you to reach your potential.

During the assessment process we discuss genetics; lifestyle; relationships; nutrition; sleep; and exercise. I believe we are impacted by both internal and external influences. Change is very challenging, but once educated, clients are better equipped to create a plan to achieve optimal level of functioning.

I have had training in non-pharmacologic pain management techniques along with assisting clients who are having surgery in utilizing skills to obtain a positive outcome requiring less pain medication and a positive healing experience. I am willing to work with clients looking for healthy alternatives to improve their lives.
