Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, DNP , APN, PMHNP
I have a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from Temple University where I graduated with honors. I've worked as a family nurse practitioner caring for at-risk, underserved patient populations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. When I recognized that there was a great need for psychiatric services in my area, I decided to attend Wilkes University and became a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner to expand upon the clinical care I could provide. My goal is to provide a personalized psychiatric medication management experience for every patient in my practice.

Getting well (and staying well) is a multi-layered process that encompasses the health of the mind, body, and spirit. We at PsychPhilly endorse a "team approach" to wellness. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with other healthcare providers to establish and optimize wellness plans for those seeking care. Few of us can accomplish everything by ourselves.
