I am a licensed, board certified Advanced Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with 10+years of experience in psychiatry. I provide both prescription medication management and also psychotherapy with meditative focus to help my clients obtain symptom relief. My office is an accepting, supportive space where we will explore more effective ways to rest and heal our minds. I specialize in depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and self-esteem issues. I am also a Fulbright scholar/researcher and practitioner of Traditional Tibetan Medicine which helps me offer a more holistic understanding of the causes of mental health and wellbeing.
I work closely with my clients to determine the most effective medications. I offer a positive, uplifting style of psychotherapy often combined with CBT and Mindfulness/Meditation exercises which help to release habitual negative thought patterns. My ultimate goal is to empower my clients so they can realize deeper happiness and freedom.
I have studied with leading meditation masters extensively for 15 years, completing a number of 100 day intensive silent meditation retreats and dozens of group and solo week-long and month-long silent retreats. I am humbled and gratified to be able to share the benefits of these practices.
