About

I am a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with prescriptive authority, in Connecticut. My focus is on medication management of Anxiety, OCD, Major Depression, ADHD, and PTSD. I am interested in trauma and the impact it has on mental health and evidence-based treatments that improve the quality of life for those affected by it. I conduct thorough evaluations and seek to understand each patient’s emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual needs. I work with the patient to uncover and explore underlying root causes that contribute to mental and emotional distress.
I strive to provide a compassionate and supportive environment and will work with the patient to develop a treatment plan that optimizes mental health and supports the goals that the patient is striving for.
I graduated with my Masters in Science of Nursing from Eastern Kentucky University and my Bachelors of Science in Nursing (summa cum laude) from Southern New Hampshire University. I was inducted into the National Society of Leadership and Success. The majority of my nursing career has been spent in adult psychiatric inpatient units.
