Professional statement

I am an ANCC board-certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. I hold a Master of Science in Nursing and a Post Masters Certificate in Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing from Fairleigh Dickinson University with Sigma Theta Tau honors.

I have experience working as a Nurse Practitioner in college health and clinical experience with medication management for adults in inpatient and outpatient settings. My nursing experience includes working on a psychiatric inpatient hospital unit as well as working with patients with eating disorders, anxiety, depression, divorce, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), situational stressors, and grief.

Each patient is unique, and I tailor treatment to goals set collaboratively between us. My approach focuses on the whole person with gentle care and attention, always considering your physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being.

One of my favorite quotes is, “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination!”
