Board Certified Adult Psychiatric & Mental Health Nurse Practitioner dedicated to the mental health and wellness of individuals with a variety of psychiatric illnesses such as mood disorders, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders and neurocognitive disorders. Thirty-five years of clinical experiences, along with passion and a profound commitment to the field of psychiatry, I pride myself on providing quality mental health care to all individuals. Psychiatric illnesses are brain disorders that respond effectively to specific treatments and interventions. The research supports that the combination of psychotherapy and psychotherapeutic agents can yield significant improvements in symptoms and overall functioning. Along with prescribing medications, I believe that it is critically important to provide individuals and families with psychoeducation to help enhance their understanding and management of psychiatric illnesses.
