I am a Board certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with 8-years of experience working in some of the most acute psychiatric settings. I started my career as a psychiatric nurse in a state-run psychiatric emergency room, where I cared for people who were often in their most vulnerable emotional state. I partially attribute the speed of patient improvement and high-rates of remission of my patient’s symptoms to my extensive experience working with the entire spectrum of psychiatric illness because I am able to make accurate diagnosis from the beginning of treatment, choose the correct treatment, which leads to quicker recovery.
