Medical Director, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
Have you been blaming yourself for the actions, behaviors or even the emotions of other people around you? You may be feeling like everything is your fault, like you are just not good enough. You feel as though your worth is only based on how you perform in school or at work, the way you look, or how much you do for others rather than WHO you are? Maybe thinking that if you’re perfect everything will be OK, having the perfect body, being the perfect student, employee, partner, friend, child or parent. If you’re perfect you won’t hurt anymore, won’t be lonely anymore, won’t be afraid anymore.
You may find yourself trying to escape the pain or numb out whether it be by controlling what you eat or how much you eat, binging or purging, using drugs or alcohol, acting out sexually, or self-harming?
Can you imagine that you are worthy simply because you’re you? I became a clinician because I believe everyone deserves to thrive in life rather than just survive, to use their voice and own their power, to know that they are worthy of love, care, and support, and to know they are enough.
I provide medication management as well as psychotherapy, yet, I do not believe there is a magic pill that will make the suffering go away. I believe medication may or may not be part of the solution. I feel strongly about personalizing the care to fit each person’s individual needs. I believe psychiatric medication has the potential to help get us to a place where we are able to do the deeper healing.
I know how exhausting it can be to feel like you will never be good enough or live up to your own unrealistic expectations. As a woman in recovery, I have experienced the miracle of change and I am passionate about helping others believe in themselves. I know recovery is possible.
Change can begin today, you deserve care, acceptance and support. I am ready to begin this journey with you.

I have experience at all levels of care: inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient (IOP), and outpatient psychiatry. My passion is working with individual and groups coping with eating disorders, substance use disorders, process addictions, trauma and co-occurring mood disorders, such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar.
