As a dedicated Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, my mission is to offer a safe, warm, and inviting space. I provide comprehensive medication management, ensuring that any medications prescribed are effectively addressing your symptoms while minimizing side effects. As an immigrant from the Philippines & a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I offer a distinct viewpoint on mental health. My experience as an inpatient psychiatric provider, treating clients with complex symptoms and those in active crisis, significantly deepens my understanding and knowledge base.
I enjoy working with young adults, teens, and children. As an ICU nurse at Seattle Children’s Hospital, I found my calling in nurturing young warriors to thrive. I also developed deep understanding of the unique needs and challenges that children and their families face in such circumstances.
Growing up in a culture where mental health is stigmatized, I am committed to making mental healthcare less intimidating. My perspective as a Filipino, LGBTQ+ individual, and immigrant provides me insight to help others from similar backgrounds.
