Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner | MA, MSN, APRN, PMHHP-BC
As a board certified psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I have been trained in medication management and psychotherapy. My goal is to help people experiencing mental health challenges (from depression and anxiety to bipolar and psychosis) to be their best self … to reach wholeness.
I have more than eight years of nursing experience in mental health with a variety of disorders in children, adolescents and adults; including depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar, and schizophrenia. I work with patients ages 8 and older. Whether a new or longstanding challenge, I want to help you find a solution.
To accomplish that goal, I use a holistic approach to treat the “whole person” – mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual – listening to you, and discussing with you, the various options to reach your goals. If medications are needed, I can prescribe them. Initial appointments are 90 minutes long to give ample time to communicate your story.
I am especially passionate about helping our country’s veterans. Having worked at a VA for 5 years, and the wife of a retired MSGT, I know the struggles of our military and earnestly desire to help. I am also convinced that God wants to reach His hurting children within the church. He has enabled us to find the solutions we have available – I am but His instrument.
I am accepting new patients and offer some evening appointments at one of TWO locations. Feel free to call or email. I look forward to meeting you.
