Profile
“While working in various positions as a nurse practitioner, specifically community health, I realized there was a significant lack of resources available for the clients I treated.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I became a nurse because I have always had a love for helping people. While working in various positions as a nurse practitioner, specifically community health, I realized there was a significant lack of resources available for the clients I treated. Throughout my experience in treating clients, I began to realize how mental health and physical health are interconnected, which ultimately led me to open my own practice.
What should someone know about working with you?
The first visit is an initial evaluation where I get to know you and learn about your past medical and mental health history. I create a safe and nonjudgmental environment that encourages personal growth. My goal is to get to know you as a person and we will develop an individualized treatment plan that best suits your needs. Typically, follow-ups are every 2-4 weeks until stable.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am a forever learner and I frequently take various training and continuing education on new treatment approaches to medication management and therapy. I am interested in learning more about substance use disorders. Collaboration is key to successful treatment.
