Professional statement

I am a psychiatric nurse practitioner with a Doctorate of Nursing Practice in Psychiatry from Columbia University. I have didactic and clinical experience providing comprehensive, evidence-based mental healthcare to patients across the lifespan.

While earning my Doctorate, I took a clinical internship at Greymatters Medical Practice, treating adults with a wide range of psychiatric concerns in an outpatient setting. I have worked at New York Foundling as part of a multidisciplinary care team for children and adolescents of underserved populations who commonly experienced racial and intergenerational trauma manifesting as depression, anxiety, anger, and academic struggles. I then moved on to Curated Mental Health to work with adults with a particular focus on using ketamine for treatment-resistant depression.

I focus on empowering you to shape your mental health journey based on your individual goals. This involves respecting patient autonomy, particularly regarding whether they wish to take medication. I specialize in helping patients with depression, anxiety, ADHD/ASD, and PTSD. My approach to therapy is centered in both humanistic and CBT methods, with a heavy focus on positive reframing, unconditional positive regard, and lifestyle modifications like exercise. With neurodiverse patients, I work in skill building to help them adjust to a neurotypical environment without losing their sense of self.

Message to clients

As a neurodiverse mental health clinician, I have first-hand experience of how being “different” can contribute to struggles with anxiety and depression. I also understand that neurodiversity can be a great strength, offering a unique way of thinking that lends itself well to problem-solving and artistic expression. My experiences bring an authenticity to the therapy space, where I can help patients build their confidence. I have a particular strength in treating anxiety and depression in older adolescent and adult patients stemming from a combination of genetic risk factors and “the stress of being human.”

I believe everyone deserves compassion and respect, and you are the expert on yourself. If we can celebrate our individuality while also appreciating being part of something much larger, I think the world will be a more peaceful place. Also, wherever you are right now, you are doing great, and I believe in you.
