My Approach to Helping

While I am qualified to prescribe medications as a mental health nurse practitioner, I firmly believe that psychotherapy should be the first line of treatment for mental health disorders. With compassionate advice and evidence-based psychotherapy, patients can develop coping strategies to counter everyday stressors.

I use an empathetic approach to foster a collaborative patient-provider relationship to help individuals overcome limiting beliefs, adopt an active lifestyle, and live mindfully. Whether patients seek mental health or weight loss, I aim to create a safe, non-judgmental space for them to voice their concerns.

I am a licensed nurse practitioner with 14 years of professional experience who believes in empowering patients through compassionate and comprehensive care. My specialties include mental health and weight loss. Throughout my career, I observed how many patients ignore the body-mind connection, which can lead to mental health challenges. Oftentimes stress can be an underlying cause of weight gain and vice versa. It encouraged me to bridge the gap by focusing on psychotherapy and medication management. My patients receive practical guidance and individualized support to promote health and wellness.
