As a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) providing holistic and patient-centered care is at the heart of what I do. The foundation of my practice is based on empathy, communication, education and compassionate care. We are not our symptoms and as such deserve to be treated as a whole person. We are shaped and effected by every aspect of our life and this cannot be overlooked when addressing our mental health.
I am board certified in general psychiatry and the sub-specialty for children and adolescents. Past experience includes treating patients of all ages both inpatient and outpatient settings, serving as medical director of an outpatient intensive behavioral program for youth and teens, and most recently treating students at Indiana University.
