My Approach to Helping
I believe the most important aspect of providing highly individualized, psychiatric care to clients is my ability to be present in the moment with them; to listen to their life stories with unconditional positive regard; to meet them where they are; to respect the fact that clients know what's best for them - not me. Establishing a trusting, caring, empathetic, therapeutic relationship with clients is the cornerstone of my success at providing high quality, patient-centered care.

I am a generalist of psychiatry, experienced working with people of all ages, and a wide variety of mental health conditions.

I hold fast to the belief that each person knows what's best for him or her. As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I pride myself in providing very well-formed, clinically sound, evidenced-based treatment options to my patients. I encourage patients to take an active role in all aspects of their mental health care.
