Are you feeling anxious and depressed? Sometimes treatment needs to take a dual approach with medications and therapy. Research shows that a combination of medications and mental health therapy can be the best approach to finding emotional wellness.*

As a nurse practitioner, I use a holistic scientific approach to improve mental health. We know that the body and mind are connected, so when you are struggling, it is essential to look at all aspects of your mental and emotional health.

I know working with the right psychiatric nurse practitioner can help you make the changes you want in your life.

I embrace an integrated approach to helping you heal. If needed, I can collaborate with your primary therapist and treatment providers to offer you the most comprehensive care.

Working together, we can help you find a way out of what is holding you back or causing you pain. You don’t have to struggle.

As a nurse practitioner, we take our time with you and work together to get the best possible outcomes.

Take a moment to imagine feeling better and getting the right help.

When Will I Get Better?
Therapy is often a long-term commitment. It is a commitment you make to yourself. Your involvement and dedication to the process is crucial. As is my approach to making this a safe and comfortable environment for you while introducing techniques and interventions to use towards your struggles. Let’s take a moment to focus on the fact that you are here and how proud it makes you.
What will therapy be like?

As your therapist, I will collaborate with you by observing, assessing and determining what will best help you and fits your needs. Through building a stable relationship and the creation of a safe and comfortable environment, I will introduce techniques and interventions that can help you through your struggles.

How often should I come?
In most cases, we will start out with once a week and increase if appropriate. Every few months we will re-evaluate to determine if a decreased frequency is necessary.
