I am a ANCC board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I am an active member of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association. I started my nursing career in acute care at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota. After working in acute care I transferred to work in inpatient psychiatry at the Mayo Clinic. Since relocating to California I have worked in inpatient psychiatry at El Camino Hospital and Stanford Healthcare. I have experience in treating depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, ADHD and adjustment disorders. I am passionate about recovery in mental health and building a therapeutic alliance with each and every patient. I am dedicated to helping patients reach their goals and find the best treatment plan for them, through pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods.
