I am a doctoral-prepared, board-certified family psychiatric nurse with over 20 years of experience in the mental health field and over 10 years in the prescribing role. I am a graduate of the University of Maryland and have received extensive training at Sheppard Pratt Hospital.
I diagnose and prescribe medications for children, adolescents and adults with a variety of concerns such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, obsessive compulsive, anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating. I also treat patients with behavioral and cognitive problems such as ADHD, autism and oppositional defiance, along with substance abuse, trauma and PTSD.
My goal is to stabilize patients, allowing them to succeed in their every day lives at their baseline level of functioning through the use of medications and collaboration with psychotherapists.
