Profile
“My treatment plans are individualized and frequently incorporate lifestyle adjustments, psychotherapy, and medication management.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My path to becoming a psychiatric nurse practitioner was inspired by personal experiences. The stigma of mental health obstructs many people's journeys to achieving happiness. As a US Army Veteran, I have seen firsthand how this affects the lives of those struggling and their families. My goal is to enhance awareness and reduce the stigma.
What should someone know about working with you?
My treatment plans are individualized and frequently incorporate lifestyle adjustments, psychotherapy, and medication management. Clients take an active role in their treatment plan and are often encouraged to keep food journals, track their moods, and obtain lab results. The goal is overall wellness in order to live your best life.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
The field of mental health is constantly changing. I feel it is my professional responsibility (as well as my passion) to stay up-to-date and change with it. To do this, I collaborate with my colleagues, attend conferences, read publications regularly, and take additional courses. It’s my belief that the more I know, the better care I can provide.
