Headway

Kristen

Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner treating children, adolescents and adults with a wide range of behavioral and emotional difficulties. With over 10 years experience working inpatient, outpatient, & emergency setting, my treatment philosophy centers on treating the whole person. We will explore the individual’s mental, physical, and emotional health with the goal of health promotion and disease prevention.


Specializing in anxiety disorders, mood disorders, childhood behavior disorders/difficulties, and psychotic disorders. It is my belief to initiate treatment with a thorough psychiatric evaluation, determine expectations/ goals, and form a collaborative plan that engages the patient & family (when applicable) to participate in the overall treatment plan.


My main goal is to improve each individual’s functioning in the important aspects of their lives. I use a combination of lifestyle modification, one on one therapy and/or pharmacologic interventions are utilized.
