My Care Philosophy
My goal as a provider is to empower my patients through individualized holistic care. I strive to create a safe space, where they can be heard through meaningful connection that encourages each person to guide their healing journey. I take an approach founded in both medication and non-medication therapies, constantly working hard to stay up to date on the latest research to best serve my patients.
Why I Chose Mental Health
Growing up, I found that there was a lot of stigma surrounding mental health and wished it was something we talked about more. We all have complex emotions, experiences, and reactions that shape who we are. Most of us will struggle with some type of mental health problems throughout our lifetime. I chose to advance my career as a psych nurse practitioner, because I feel it is an honor to be able to assist individuals in taking back their life from the effects of mental illness.
Interests & Activities
Outside of work, I love to hike, dance, try new restaurants, and travel. Partly because of my love for travel, in college I lived in Ireland for 6 months!
