Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, MSN, CNP
I am a nurse practitioner that can help you with your primary care needs and psychiatric needs. I love helping my patients find a more balanced way to live. I believe in holistic approach and helping my patients feel better with as few medications as possible. I have worked in many nursing areas and have found that many issues stem from childhood that later grow into unhealthy habits and unhealthy ways of treating yourself.
