I am a doctoral prepared, licensed, and double board-certified psychiatric and family nurse practitioner (DNP, FNP-C PMHNP-BC). I received my Doctor of Nursing Practice and Post Masters Certification in Psychiatric Mental Healthcare from Brandman University, Irvine California, Master of Science as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Walden University Minneapolis Minnesota, and Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information systems from the University of North Texas, Denton, Texas.
I have over 25 years of combined work experience and have acquired extensive background in telepsychiatry, impatient and outpatient mental health over the last 5 years. Mental health disorders addressed include but not limited to ADHD, Alcohol dependence, Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Bipolar, Insomnia, Dementia and Weight loss.
Most of my clients describe me as compassionate, knowledgeable, attentive, experienced, versatile, and goal oriented in approach. My ability to encourage, patiently communicate and explain key elements of a successful treatment plan make my services unforgettable.
