Do you need help with mental health issues? Are you looking to change your life and become the best version of yourself? I work with my patients to identify the underlying issues that are impacting their quality of life and come up with a personalized, evidenced based plan to help them.
I provide compassionate, non-judgmental quality care. I treat a wide range of psychiatric issues, including (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, social anxiety, bipolar, alcohol use, PTSD, OCD, opioid use, ADHD, stress, postpartum depression, psychosis, and mood disorders.
I am a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner who can prescribe the same medication as a physician. I work very closely with our chief medical officer, who is a board certified psychiatrist to provide personalized, evidenced-based care to my patients. I know you want to be seen as soon as possible so we have same week and evening appointments.
As a seasoned nurse practitioner, I use a gentle, supportive style informed by the latest scientific evidence to guide you toward better mental health. I’m here to help you find the right path forward. Our office is open 8 am – 8 pm and Saturdays so you’ll have the support you need!
