"I am a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner committed to mental health treatment promotion and prevention. With a psychodynamic foundation, I integrate Internal family systems(IFS) and attachment theories to my treatment approach. This approach is successful with clients seeking help with adulting, relationships, families, and parenting as well as individual therapy. As an open and affirming Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner I've learned that the integration of these talk modalities are helpful for navigating life processes. Talk therapy undergirds the treatment relationship and when necessary may be complemented with medication management. "

"Like riding a wild horse galloping through the woods, our mind can take us wherever it wants until we cultivate skills to tame and steer it. Ruminating on big emotions can seem ferocious and unmanageable. After a break up, a diagnosis, a betrayal, a crisis, change or loss you can feel overwhelmed by what your over-heated, Lamborghini brain kicks up. I can help you create a safe space, reduce speed, re-navigate and travel towards a meaningful life."

I do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time. Sometimes people want to work on one problem and then develop a curiosity about how their minds work.

"One thing is certain in life: things always change. All of us encounter difficult changes, narrow passages that we must navigate: unemployment, relocation, breakups, divorce, illness, bereavement. We also experience good, positive changes. Ironically, these too can be quite stressful. Falling in love, getting married, childbirth, getting a promotion at work, any major accomplishment can precipitate uneasiness and worry. It can be tremendously helpful to have the attention, support and perspective of a thoughtful therapist. Together, we collaborate to get you through these challenges while, at the same time, being curious about the deeper meanings underneath the surface."
