Dually licensed as a psych mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) and licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) affords me the expanded view of mental health from the physiological and psychological perspectives. That means I can offer both medication management and psychotherapy. This advantage can shorten the length of time one has to wait before moving towards improved health and well-being.

Education

Highest Degree Earned: Masters Science in Nursing, Masters in Social Work
Discipline: Psych Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Psychotherapist, Life Coach

Psychotherapist with experience in hospitals, community mental health centers, non-profit agencies and private practice. Decided to return back to further my education to better serve clients. Graduated from Vanderbilt University with Masters in Nursing which adds the medical background to my training. Combining these two diverse fields (psychology and medicine) affords me to see healing from the physical, mental and spiritual aspects.
