Profile
“What drew me to the mental health field was a memorable, in-depth experience during clinical rotations at a facility for chronically ill clients.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My path to becoming a psychiatric nurse practitioner was not direct and I initially started in critical care. What drew me to the mental health field was a memorable, in-depth experience during clinical rotations at a facility for chronically ill clients. I found an appreciation for this field, fueled by my own experience in working with family members struggling with particular ailments.
What should someone know about working with you?
The intake process usually lasts about 45-60 minutes where I try to understand as much about the client as possible, including where they are coming from and where they are presently. Every question is relevant to the psychopharmacological treatment plan we develop together.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I stay up-to-date with monthly publications as well as conferences. The field is changing rather rapidly and medication can be a dynamic force to keep track of. Treating knowledge as a passion assures that the pursuit never becomes stale.
