About

Accepting NEW clients. Are you feeling overwhelmed by stressful life events and finding it difficult to function in your day-to-day life? Mental illness can affect every aspect your life. As a dual certified family nurse practitioner and psychiatric nurse practitioner, I have seen how untreated depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder and other psychiatric illnesses lead to overall poor health outcomes. For these reasons, I'm passionate about helping clients to get prompt mental health diagnosis and treatment so that they can live their life to the fullest.
I believe that every patient is a unique individual and should be treated with the utmost respect. My goal is to provide professional, compassionate, culturally sensitive and evidence based approach to treatment. I treat individuals in all age groups including children and adolescents.
Are you suffering from overwhelming sense of worrying, anxiety, restlessness, depressed mood, racing mind, difficulty concentrating, sleep disturbance, changes in your appetite? These symptoms can be due to mental health issues. Reach out to me at Tandem Psychiatric and Family Practice. I can help you to get well so you can live your life to the fullest.
