Philosophy of Care

As a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, I diagnose and treat children and adolescents with psychiatric disorders. I believe a collaborative approach with primary care and psychotherapist is best for each patients’ wellness. My prior experience at an adult inpatient psychiatric unit is what led me to pursue a career working exclusively with children and adolescents. I strive to provide optimal care and believe in incorporating education, collaboration, and an approach that focuses on the “whole person.”
