I am a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner who specializes in treating children and adolescents. I practice an integrative approach, as I firmly believe that behavior is never isolated and is comprised of factors that include genetics, environment, diet, sleep and even our level of physical activity. While I do prescribe medication, and understand that they can be an integral part of healing, I find that genuine growth comes from introspection and challenging oneself.
