Utilizing a team-based approach, I work with my clients to learn where they are and where they would like to be. I provide good feedback and we oftentimes work through several iterations of short, medium and long term goals.

Therapist Overview

I am a board-certified Psychiatric Mental health Nurse Practitioner. I treat clients across the lifespan and a sub-specialization in child and adolescents and addiction medicine. I make the experience a positive, supportive, and at times fun one. I am very clinical but I remove the “clinical feeling” from the experience. I am very client-focused and develop unique treatment plans that actually help them achieve their goals. I treat numerous areas of psychiatry including, ADHD, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, PTSD and Trauma, Family/Couples therapy, sleep and appetite, Schizophrenia, OCD, ODD, personality, and eating disorders and addiction.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and supportive therapy. I learn about each individual client and learn my client’s “story” so as to understand where they have been, where they are, and where they need/want to go. I also get to the “why” for each client, which is oftentimes the most important question.

I utilize humor and my clients engage particularly well. My clients often say I should do standup psychiatry. My clients oftentimes ask me how I know them so well. I am famous for actively listening. My clients feel they receive my clinical expertise without feeling the clinical aspects of what one may expect in psychiatry. I am highly supportive and provide relevant health education. I utilize a team-based approach. I don’t speak at my clients I speak with them.

Anxiety in anticipation of the “first meeting” will be replaced by feeling more relaxed, comfortable, in a better mood, and more confident after the meeting than prior to it. They can also expect that their needs will be addressed and feel they have been “heard” by me. I am different than most in this regard as I treat my patients as I would a family member, and they can definitely feel it.
