I am a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner with both a Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree. I am  licensed in WA state with full prescriptive authority. I have worked in the field of mental health for the last 10 years in a variety of settings including outpatient clinics, telehealth, psychiatric inpatient settings, partial hospitalization programs, memory care, and providing in-home ABA therapy to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. 

 

In addition to medication management, I use an Internal Family Systems (IFS) lens to approach healing. IFS is a non-pathologizing, transformative, and evidence-based psychotherapy that guides individuals toward access and love of their inner protective and wounded parts.  This includes exploration of thoughts, feelings, sensations, and imagery. In addition to IFS, I draw from narrative therapy and other somatically oriented approaches including mindfulness and Vipassana meditation, and I am fascinated by the transformation that can occur when we become curious about the body’s wisdom.  I feel deeply honored to do this work, and I acknowledge the courage and risk it requires for an individual to both seek guidance and lean into deeper understanding.

 

Areas of focus: ADHD, Adjustment Disorders, Anxiety, Depression, Gender Affirming Care, Grief, Loneliness, Navigating Life Transitions, OCD, PTSD, Stress. Ages 14 - 35.
