With backgrounds in both conventional and alternative therapies, I love personalizing care to your individual mental health needs. Your symptoms are often rooted in a deeper cause (or causes) that require considering your mind, body, daily habits and relationships. I specialize in working with adults 18 and older who want to go beyond just 'a pill for every ill' worldview and incorporate lifestyle changes, hormone optimization and effective supplement regimes. Appointments Online -Lunch Time and After Work or After Class Options Available!
I am dual certified as a Psychiatric Mental Health and an Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner with additional advanced training in hormone optimization and alternative therapies for mental health conditions such as PTSD, major depression, ADHD, substance use and a wide variety of anxiety disorders.
I look forward to being part of your journey! Please reach out to me to get started. I offer initial intakes that are a full 60 minutes and my follow up appointments are a full 30 minutes.
