Hello, I look forward to meeting you! I'm a Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with over 10 years of nursing experience. I specialize in treating a variety of acute/chronic mental illnesses with psychiatric trauma. As an experienced Military Police in the Air National Guard and a Medic in the Army Reserves, I enjoy working with veterans, supporting their mental health journey through both medication management and psychotherapy. I work with an amazing group of colleagues at Lavender, an online psychiatry and therapy office, where we believe psychiatric care shouldn't be expensive nor impossible to access.
At Lavender, we provide a range of modern mental health services from the comfort of home. All our providers offer both medication management & therapy in a single appointment to save you time and money. Pairing therapy and medication to treat depression and anxiety can help you feel better faster with a 60% improved chance of recovery.
Your time is extremely valuable, and we pride ourselves on being super transparent & responsive. Easily check our availability and book your next session online at www.joinlavender.com/book-now; or connect with our concierge team by phone 1-855-444-7258 or email hello@joinlavender.com .
