I am a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner who specializes in working with the child (ages 5 and up), adolescent, and college populations. My professional interests include working with autism spectrum disorders and disruptive behavioral and impulse control disorders. I also treat ODD, ADHD, anxiety and depression, as well as other mood and thought disorders. My approach to prescribing is conservative in nature, and I tend to lean towards a more therapeutic and holistic perspective in psychiatry.
