My end goal is to restore and solidify feelings of stability and well-being into the lives of each and every single one of my clients. I work hard to advocate for all of my clients, especially those that struggle to be heard or well-respected. As a board-certified nurse in family psychiatry and a Doctorate in Nursing Practice in psychiatry, I have garnered extensive experience in evidence-based patient-oriented practice. I have worked in this field for over 13 years with experience at different nursing levels and a strong grasp of holistic mental heath care.
My specialty is in Mental Health Disorders Across the Lifespan. I have worked with Saint Barnabas, Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital, Jersey City Medical Center, among other reputable and esteemed mental health facilities. I create treatment plans with compassion, understanding, and special attention to my client's wants and needs. I currently work at L&A.
L&A Absolute Care LLC is an outpatient mental health service care center which provides psychiatric services to individuals across the age spectrum from children to adolescents and adults. The scope of our treatment includes the delivery of comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, medication monitoring, and holistic therapy.
