About

Are you feeling overwhelmed by stressful life events and finding it difficult to function in your day to day life? Current life events have highlighted the need for increased access to mental health care. Mental illness can affect all aspects of life if not treated. As a dual certified family nurse practitioner and psychiatric nurse practitioner, I've seen how untreated depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder and other illnesses contribute to poor health outcomes and decreased quality of life. For these reasons, I'm passionate about helping clients to get prompt diagnosis and treatment so they can live life to the fullest.
I believe that every person 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 of all age groups including children and adolescents.
Are you suffering from overwhelming sense of worry, anxiety, depressed mood, difficulty concentrating, irritability, sleep disturbance, changes in your appetite? These symptoms can be manifestations of mental health illness. Reach out to Tandem Psychiatric and family Practice. I can help you to get well so you can live your live to the fullest.
