About me

I am a psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with 15-plus years of medical nursing experience. Welcome to my Food, Exercise, and Mind Resilience Program. I have experience in critical care medicine, emergency care medicine, cardiovascular open-heart medicine experience as well as inpatient psychiatric training. I am currently trained in nutritional and integrative psychiatric interventions and have a personal background in supplementation medicine.

I currently work to assess, diagnose, and treat children, adolescents, and adults to evaluate cognitive, psychological, and psychiatric misalignments. I provide comprehensive and individualized psychiatric and psychological assessments with careful interpretation of results and appropriate recommendations to help our clients get the most from their evaluations. ​ ​I support working closely with referral sources and in collaboration with -primary care, medical specialists, and or therapists to guarantee a comprehensive treatment plan.​​​


I pride myself in being one of the few integrative holistic mental health providers in the area with a comprehensive individualized level of care. I apply to investigate approaches to the impact of genetics, chemical imbalances, metabolic dysfunctions, toxins, nutritional deficiencies, early childhood experiences, trauma, current behaviors, and lifestyle impacts on our client's wellness. I use collective and inclusive treatment plans while providing solutions for improvements using alternative, complementary and traditional interventions to help our clients gain health. My detailed assessment helps support insight into causes and contributors impacting your mental and physical wellness. At the same time, I keep you accountable in initiating a move to take your health to the next level.

My holistic approach uses natural, integrative, and conventional interventions, lifestyle modification, supplementation, and, if necessary, traditional psychotropic medications to help bring about complete wellness. I UNDERSTANDS that medicine is not for everyone. Mind wellness is possible, and finding the right mental health therapists/ holistic, integrative psychiatric providers for your wellness matters.
