Focus Area: Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Licensed in: California

I want to get to know my patients and their goals so that together we may develop a treatment plan to meet their needs. I believe that each patient’s situation is unique, and we must work together and in collaboration with a treatment, team to find the best course of treatment. I enjoy taking an integrative approach utilizing multiple treatment modalities to support patients such as supportive therapy, psychopharmacology, and alternative and innovative treatments.
