Hi, I'm a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner licensed in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. I received my Masters in Adult and Gerontology Nurse Practitioner from UMASS Lowell and my Post-Masters in Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner from UMASS Amherst. I have at least 5 years of experience in this role following almost 8 years as a psychiatric nurse. I have experience in managing a vast array of psychiatric and mental health disorders through psychotherapy and medication management. I am all about bringing relief to my clients to improve their quality of life.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we'll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions. You will have my full attention, and know that I value collaborative work. I like to empower my clients and make them feel in control over their health and their treatment.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having worked in psychiatry for many years I have great experience in managing various mental health conditions through psychopharmacology and psychotherapy. I am well vexed in helping clients obtain optimum mental health. My strengths as a provider include listening and empowering my clients and collaborating with them to effectively manage their illness.

My treatment methods

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

I incorporate brief psychotherapy with ACT relying on acceptance and mindfulness modalities, and the client's commitment and strategies for behavior change in order to promote psychological flexibility.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I incorporate brief psychotherapy with CBT to reduce symptoms of various mental illness. I use this method to help the client identify unhealthy thoughts while challenging them to learn practical ways to manage or change them to promote their mental and physical health.

Psychoeducation

I incorporate psychotherapy with psychoeducation as an evidence-based therapeutic intervention by teaching clients and providing them information and support to better understand and cope with their illness.
