  • OWNER, HAPPY MINDS LLC, my solo private practice I started in April 2020.

    I believe the most important aspect in providing highly effective, patient-centered psychiatric care, is having the ability to be present in the moment with clients; to listen to their life stories with unconditional positive regard; to meet them where they are; to respect the fact that patients know what's best for them. Establishing an empathetic, trusting and caring therapeutic relationship with patients is the cornerstone of my success in providing high quality, compassionate, individualized, comprehensive psychiatric services to people of all ages.

    I am a board-certified Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I specialize in assessing, diagnosing, evaluating and treating most psychiatric conditions.

    Every client is unique and so is every treatment plan. What my patients appreciate most about me is my honest, down-to-earth, passionate approach to psychiatry and psychopharmacology.
