About Me

I am a board-certified nurse practitioner specializing in psychiatry. I have experience in treating mood disorders, anxiety, trauma, and attention issues. I work primarily with adult individuals.

 

I believe that every person has the capacity for self-healing and wholeness. I offer a compassionate and non-judgmental space to listen carefully and support you wherever you may be in your journey.  My practice is oriented toward humanistic and holistic perspectives.

 

I utilize principles of CBT, IFS, mindfulness, somatic and energy psychology when working with clients, following their lead and pace. I provide comprehensive psychiatric assessments, and prescribe psychiatric medications and supplements to target particular symptoms as needed. I also incorporate Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy in our treatment plans when appropriate.
