I am a licensed and board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP). In my practice, I treat both adults and children for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and a wide range of other mental health conditions. My nursing background includes 15 years in the pre-hospital and emergency medicine setting, with ten of those years at a Level 1 Trauma Center, and 7 as a medevac flight nurse.
I was awarded the Tennessee Star of Life Award in 2017. My past adversities and unique experiences serve as the foundation and motivation for my transition into mental health. I enjoy working directly with military and first responders
Along with supportive and motivational psychotherapy techniques, my goal is to find an effective medication regimen that aligns with your unique needs and lifestyle.
