My Ideal Client

I am a board-certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner who has been practicing for nearly fifteen years. After my master’s program, I completed my Doctorate of Nursing Practice in 2012 at Vanderbilt University. I started my career in mood disorder research before focusing on clinical practice. Over the last decade I have worked with underserved populations, individuals with intellectual disabilities, the general adult population, and undergraduate and graduate level students.

My Approach to Helping

My approach with patients blends medication management with therapy approaches including my specialty in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). I am excited to help people of all backgrounds and identities. I am here if you are looking for relief from emotional pain, mental distress or other struggles. I want to help you through whatever is causing you difficulties in a supportive and collaborative way. I am thoughtful, and I listen with openness and compassion. I strive to create an accepting and safe environment where we work together to decrease your symptoms and struggles and to support your health and growth.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Outside of work you’ll likely find me in one of a few places. I value the time I can spend with the people I care about the most. To that end, I spend most of my free time at home with my wife, daughter, dogs, and cats. I also enjoy being active and love the ritual of going to the gym. Otherwise, you might find me preoccupied with brewing the perfect cup of coffee.
