I am a Board certified nurse practitioner, in practice for more than six years, working with clients in the treatment of mental illness. I am also a registered nurse with more than 18 years of psychiatric experience. I am passionate about using empirical evidence and new renewed literature for care that is patient specific. My goal is to make a real and meaningful difference in my clients lives by helping them live healthier and happier lives, through the use of medication and psychotherapy for treatment of psychiatric disorder. My collaborative approach focuses on promoting the understanding of mental illness.
