Registered and Certified Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse
Independent Mental Health Practitioner
I have experience working with a wide variety of mental health issues, ranging from stress management to bipolar disorder. My schedule allows me to see clients as frequently as needed – based on their need. I have maintained relationships with many psychiatrists around town and am able to refer to them if necessary.
Areas of expertise:
I see adults 19 and older. I work with mild to severe problems. Working with clients who are diagnosed with acute psychiatric disorders (Major Depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, etc.) is very rewarding for me. I feel that educating a client about their illness and how to recognize triggers and manage symptoms, empowers someone who feels victimized by their brain chemistry to not feel so overwhelmed and helpless. My nursing background has helped me to better understand chronic and acute medical disorders.
I am EMDR level II prepared and intensively trained in DBT. These tools of therapy enable me to help with resolving old hurts and traumas – and to assist you with managing powerful emotions that might otherwise disrupt everyday life.
