I am a doctor of nursing practice as well as a board pediatric nurse practitioner who specializes in primary care pediatric mental health issues. I am a board certified pediatric mental health specialist and have a passion for helping children and adolescents who struggle with mental health concerns, primarily anxiety and depression. I use CBT as a first line treatment and strive to provide high quality evidence based care. Outside of work, I am married, have two boys, and I enjoy being out in nature, spending time with my family, and love my dogs!
