Everything that I do in the therapy room is influenced by my belief that underneath problem behaviors, there is intrinsic good and innate wisdom in each of us. My mission is to help each client learn how to unlock the connection to that goodness and find healing within him or herself.

  • Board-certified Psychiatric-mental Health Nurse Practitioner

  • Trained in health behavior from a public health perspective

I believe that the client is at the center of the team, and I am a coach on each one’s journey to mental health and wellness. I value working in an environment where our clients are already in therapy with some of the best counselors around and collaborating to identify whether medication might aid in their healing.
