I am board certified as a Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I completed my education at Vanderbilt University and have been practicing since 2016. I have experience working with adults and adolescents suffering from psychiatric, substance abuse, and behavioral disorders. I meet my clients where they are and together we develop a treatment plan to help them meet their goals and live and maintain healthy lives. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, attending my daughter’s sporting events, and traveling abroad.

Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?
Everyone has dealt with mental health in their own lives or in the lives of someone close to them. I believe that everyone should have access to quality, evidenced based, culturally sensitive care.
