Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

Education

University of Texas, Austin- Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)

I am a psychiatric nurse practitioner with experience in treating a diverse population. I believe that every person is unique and I treat them as such. I provide an individualized approach to treatment because achieving mental wellness is more than having a diagnosis and taking a medication. I emphasize education to help you understand symptoms and how they relate to a specific diagnosis. Although medication may be necessary, it is rarely sufficient. I maintain a multidisciplinary approach to treatment by collaborating with therapists, nutritionists, and other specialists and medical professionals to help you achieve wellness.

I specialize in treating individuals struggling with the following: anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia, dementia, ADHD, alcohol use disorder, substance use disorder, and dual diagnosis. I see patients across the life span from 6 to 65+.
