I am an Advanced practice Nurse (APRN) with Board Certification in Psychiatry. I have been trained in the fields of medicine/nursing, education, psychology and alternative/ complementary care. My experience has included a fellowship in psychiatry with Harvard-Vanguard in Boston, owning and operating an integrative wellness center in RI, and teaching on the collegiate level. I have many years of experience working with individuals from childhood through later life. I also love to work with couples.
I am a skilled therapist trained in multiple forms of treatment including EMDR, CBT, Trauma, Depth Hypnosis, Inner Child and Family of Origin work, addiction and recovery, and spirituality.
As an Advanced Practice Nurse, I assess, diagnose and treat mental health disorders including multiple forms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD and other mood-related disorders. My experience also includes working with women specifically those in need of therapeutic support through pregnancy, postpartum or menopause.
As an integrative practitioner I utilize medication ( such as antidepressants and other forms of psychiatric medications) as well as supplements. herbs, nutritional support, yoga/meditation and other body- based modalities.
My philosophy for healing embraces the view that each person is unique and deserving of compassionate care that is based on the person’s goals and vision for health. Integrative healing involves the whole person- body, mind, spirit and the environment one lives and works in.
