When meeting with my clients my goal is to create a safe, compassionate, collaborative environment. I also want to develop a trusting and therapeutic relationship by completing a thorough psychiatric evaluation in a non-judgemental, caring place. I provide client centered care and treatment based on evidence based guidelines. I effectively manage client symptoms by initiating, adjusting, and monitoring medications. I think it's important to improve client's self-awareness and knowledge regarding mental health issues and psychiatric medications.
I have practiced as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner for 20 years. I have worked in private practice, child and adolescent inpatient settings, and adult inpatient settings. I enjoy working with all ages; child, teens, and adults.
Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to having an open conversation about your expectations and goals for treatment.
