Trained in motivational interviewing, I incorporate many of the skills I acquired in my daily practice, including active listening, reflection, and meeting clients "where they are at.
I am a board-certified, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner specializing in diagnosis, medication management, and therapy. Since graduating from Columbia School of Nursing in 2012, I have gained extensive experience treating children, adolescents, adults, and families with a wide range of symptoms. Addressing mental health issues can be scary, especially for children and parents. I work with families to create a calming and trusting environment. Clients and families are encouraged to discuss their wants, needs, and fears, which in turn helps to destigmatize the process.
