About

Things are tough all over! It can be hard to ask for & find help. I’m a warm, compassionate, Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist in solo practice. I ONLY do "talk therapy,” using a combination of evidence based methods. I do NOT provide OR refill medications OR prescriptions! Confidential (e-mail, text, video, phone) and remote - whatever way works for you. I mainly work with women, but welcome everyone! My specialties are reproductive mental health (PMDD, PMAD, pregnancy loss, infertility, menopause), anxiety/mood disorders, BPD, HSPs, stress, life transitions, disordered eating, nomads, nurses, young adults & college students.
You & I will be equal partners in your care, an interactive team. We'll decide together what will work best for you - short term problem solving, or longer, more in-depth help. As an RN, I’m caring and holistic. I ensure that your physical, emotional, social & health concerns will be addressed. You will be treated with respect, with your dignity preserved.
Good lives are about good relationships. I value & care for those who cross my path. Morris, etc. said, “Each day harder than the last, breaking down in the dark, can’t put the pieces back together? Here’s to the lonely, to the brokenhearted. I want you to know I feel your pain. I see you.” That’s ME, to a “T”! Truth! I get it. Work with me. Hold on to hope.
