I am a family psychiatric nurse practitioner and work with children, adolescents and adults with mood disorders (such as depression and bipolar disorder) anxiety disorders (such as panic disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder), attention deficit disorder, substance abuse and various other diagnoses. I strive to empower individuals through medication management and psychotherapy in developing positive coping skills in order to live healthier lives. I prescribe medications along with providing individual and family therapy in my private practice in the Towson, Maryland area.
I have over five years of expertise in medication management of patients with psychiatric disorders and hold a Master of Science degree from University of Maryland as a family psychiatric nurse practitioner. I also have received extensive training through Sheppard Pratt hospital.
