I am certified as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, as well as a Family Nurse Practitioner with over 25 years of nursing experience. Most of my life’s work has been in mental health, working as a Psychiatric Mental Health Registered Nurse, both inpatient and emergency psychiatry. I have also worked in a variety of other settings, such as medical emergency, rehabilitation and wound care, home health, case management, geriatric outpatient residential, geriatric psychiatry (inpatient locked) and outpatient community care clinics. I believe in taking a holistic, mind, body, and spirit approach to addressing the root causes of your mental health symptoms and will develop a plan to move forward toward healing. I will listen carefully to your specific concerns and collaborate with you in developing a treatment plan that balances your physical and mental health. I provide Telemedicine (Telepsychiatry) services so that you can conveniently be seen from your home without having to travel.

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

I will listen carefully to your specific concerns and collaborate with you in developing a treatment plan that balances your physical and mental health.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

• Motivational Interviewing • Culturally Sensitive • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) • Mindfulness • Biofeedback • Psychodynamic • Coaching • Humor • Kindness • Homework • Christian/Spiritual Counseling available upon request

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

My biggest strengths are compassion, active listening, empathy, support, and encouragement. I have real world knowledge of how stress and/or traumatic life experiences can impact our lives physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. So, if you are constantly worrying, having difficulty sleeping, losing interest in the things that once gave you joy, or you just feel lost. Please give me a call and I can help.
