Background

 

I’m a board-certified Psychiatric-Mental Health and Family Nurse Practitioner, experienced in providing both inpatient and outpatient mental health care services to children, adolescents, and adults. I received my advanced practice education and training at Duke University, and completed specialized training in psychiatry at Johns Hopkins.

 

Approach

I start with a full evaluation of your concerns, so that important issues are not overlooked. Every client is unique, and the plan of treatment is tailored to meet your individual needs. If it is determined that medication may be helpful in your treatment, I discuss the options with you so that you can make an informed decision and feel comfortable with the plan. I can also advise on management of circadian rhythm disorders, sleep hygiene, light therapy, genetic testing, and nutrition.
