Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, MSN,
Your mental health is nothing to be ashamed of and far too often we feel that stigma and do not seek help. Whether you are in a crisis or just feel that life is getting tough, I am here to help you work through what you are experiencing and to help you feel more like yourself. I am very passionate about healing and helping my clients to find a sustainable support system. No single medication or approach to healing will be fitting for every client, that is why I am eager to work with my clients to find what combination works best for them so they can begin to thrive and work toward the best version of themselves. I enjoy working with children (8+), adolescents and adults with depression, anxiety, trauma, mood disorders, post-partum depression and anxiety, and much more.
My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing Communications from Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, VA. I then moved to Nashville, TN where I earned the title of Registered Nurse. I worked in various settings including Neonatal ICU, Burn ICU and Oncology. I decided to further my education and attend Tennessee State University for my Master’s in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner, where I graduated with Honors. I worked as a Family Nurse Practitioner for 9 years and felt a pull after the Pandemic to return to school for Psychiatry and Mental Health. I attended Liberty University and graduated with Honors as a double Board Certified Nurse Practitioner.
