As a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner, I provide a holistic approach to ensuring your highest-quality care and safety. I prescribe medication and lifestyle changes in the context of a therapeutic relationship to support both the creation of an environment in the brain amenable to changes and psychosocial interventions to support such changes. I treat children, adolescents and adults of all ages seeking to support their wellness in a variety of ways including strengthening academic and work performance, improving interpersonal relationships, and decreasing debilitating anxiety, sleep and mood disturbances.
Nurses are consistently voted among the most trusted professions in the United States. Nurses consider the biological, social and psychological etiologies and implications of mental health, and many patients recognize such in their care. I provide medication prescriptions, psychotherapy services, tele-psychiatry, and care coordination services.
I've worked with in-patient psychiatric and cardiac services, clinics and intensive home-based psychiatric services. I have specific training with youth, older adults, substance use and those who have chronic illness. I trained academically at Columbia, learned Spanish abroad and have a family here in NYC. I am humbled by your first step and trust here now.
