“As a psychiatric nurse practitioner I use medications and other modalities – such as mindfulness and supportive therapy – to help you realize your optimal health.”

As a psychiatric nurse practitioner I use medications and other modalities – such as mindfulness and supportive therapy – to help you realize your optimal health. Psychiatric medications, especially when combined with psychotherapy, can play an important role in achieving a greater sense of consistency and balance.

Often, I meet patients during times of crises. After a thorough psychiatric evaluation that explores the biological and psycho-social issues affecting your lived experience, we will decide together what medication regimen, if any, would be most effective. Through my work, I have found that psychiatric medications, if used judiciously and sensibly, can significantly help an individual to reduce the chaos or mental debris occupying one’s life. This helps create the necessary space to foster self-love; enjoy deeper personal relationships with families, friends and co-workers; and, access one’s innate talents and creativity. I have been successful in helping individuals who are experiencing challenging life transitions, acute or chronic anxiety, depression, attention issues, insomnia and chemical dependency.

I also work with clients during their relative times of wellness in order to create a more balanced, mindful and body-centered consciousness. I can help you articulate blind spots or resolve chronic anxieties that have traditionally disrupted your healing process or kept you from experiencing a greater sense of fulfillment.

I have worked in various types of therapy settings, including in-patient and outpatient clinics. I have considerable experience working with individuals who are reconsidering their relationship to alcohol and other substances. I offer a non-judgmental space and I understand how important it is to meet you exactly where you are while supporting your discovery of what matters most in your life.

I’m excited to do this work together.
