I am a Licensed and Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. In addition, I am also an Approved AAMFT Supervisor for Marriage and Family Therapy. I hold a Master's Degree in Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing as well as a minor as a Psychology and Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist. All this translates into 30 years of work as a mental health therapist. In addition, for 17 of those years I have added on the role of Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. This involved one year of postgraduate education and a year of internship with a Psychiatrist. Part of my practice involves evaluating, diagnosing and treating people with serious mental illnesses, and prescribing psychiatric medications for those in need. I am trained and certified in DBT as well as biofeedback. I am good at listening. I am good at helping families stay or get in a positive place as they transition through life transitions that are challenging them.
