Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner Across the Lifespan, Family Nurse Practitioner, Family Psychiatry, Psychosomatic Psychiatry (Consultation Liaison)373
Hello, I am a certified Family Nurse Practitioner and a board-certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. I diagnose and treat patients 13 yrs old and up with conditions such as anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, ADHD, mood, and substance use disorders. Treatment may include medications and brief supportive therapy as well as providing referrals for additional support. As a nurse practitioner, I focus on the integration of the clients’ physical and mental health with the expectation of the client being an active participant in their treatment plan. Each client is unique and with that, each treatment plan is individualized. I provide care in a comfortable, respectful, judgment-free environment with the ultimate goal of helping you reach optimum mental health.
I received my Master’s degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner from St. Joseph's College of Maine. While treating chronic diseases in primary care, it was evident that mental health services were also warranted, hence my return back to school. I attained the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree and shortly after obtained my post-masters certificate as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. My education and clinical experience have afforded me the knowledge of looking at individuals holistically and not just the symptoms. I look forward to being a part of your recovery.
