Nurse Practitioner

I am a nurse practitioner, which means I have spent my professional career enhancing the care of others, advocating for patients, and explaining the why of healthcare. Listening is the core of what I do during our time together. As I listen, I merge medical, nursing, and therapy disciplines while developing a personalized treatment plan. During our journey, we will stumble onto blind spots, build trust, grow hope, develop healthy boundaries, experience joy, and find comfort.

You might be wondering if starting medication is the right thing to do. You might wonder if medication is better than choosing a coping method that will inevitably fail again. For some, the first step is medication; for others, it’s therapy. I am here to help by offering safe medication recommendations that reduce symptoms and enhance therapy. Through active listening, reflection, and thorough explanations of medication recommendations, you can decide which options are best for you.

I work with clients across the lifespan- from children through adults.  I have clinical training and experience treating children and adolescents, complex trauma, first responders, and those working in mission-critical environments.
