Registered Nurse Psychotherapist
I am a Psychology grad and an Advanced Practice Nurse, specializing in Psychiatric Mental Health for over 20 years. I have worked with children and adolescents with complex mental health needs as well as adults with a variety of concerns including; mood disorders, eating disorders, addictions, trauma, impulse-control disorders, and physical health issues. My philosophy and practice center around integrating both physiological health and psychological wellness combined with a trauma-informed approach. My training and experience in several evidence-based treatment modalities (CBT, CPT, DBT, MI, Mindfulness) are applicable to most mental health concerns. My years working in acute care have given me a particular interest in providing support and care for first-responders and front-line health care workers (nurses, doctors, paramedics, police, corrections officers, firefighters, and military). Throughout the current pandemic, this has been my primary area of focus. As a helping professional experienced on the front-lines of health care and the justice system, I offer a unique perspective of support and understanding of the culture and needs of essential workers and first-responders.
