Focus Area: Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Licensed in: California

While my specialty is medication management, I recognize that is not everyone’s first choice. As a provider, I will listen to your concerns, make recommendations, and together, we will create a treatment plan you are comfortable with.

About Me

As a board-certified Advanced Practice Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), my journey began in 1997 when I started working with Autistic children, practicing behavioral therapy in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After earning my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Carroll College-Columbia College of Nursing, I immersed myself in acute care psychiatric inpatient facilities. Continuing my education, I pursued a Master of Science in Nursing at California State University Long Beach, which opened doors to diverse roles in adult outpatient and intensive outpatient programming and psychiatric services within correctional institutions. Certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center and a proud member of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association, my passion lies in treating adults with depression, anxiety, and various mental health conditions, integrating brief psychotherapy techniques into my practice.
