I am a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner that has been providing nursing care for over 13 years. I currently help manage the care of patients with cognitive, behavioral, and emotional disorders. I became a RN in 2006 and a family nurse practitioner in 2012. After working in family medicine, I became very passionate about mental health and the needs of patients in the mental health community. I recognized that they were incredibly underserved and I wanted to change that. I pursued my doctorate in nursing, focusing on depression screening in primary care and received my DNP in 2014.

I strongly believe in shoring up wellness rather than treating illness, and you can expect to spend a significant amount of time working on sleep, fitness and nutrition, in addition to tackling deeper psychological issues. I have specialized training in treating addiction (including the use of Suboxone for opiate abuse) and women's mental health but am well-versed in treating any mental health condition.
