With over a decade of dedicated service in nursing, I am a board-certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, having completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Central Missouri and my graduate studies at the University of Missouri. My professional journey has encompassed a rich tapestry of experiences, spanning both inpatient psychiatric settings and outpatient care.
My approach to mental health care is grounded in a holistic and conservative philosophy, encapsulated by the belief that “through more education, there is less medication.” I am deeply committed to fostering a collaborative environment, placing effective communication at the forefront to ensure that each client’s voice is not only heard but becomes an integral part of their healing journey.
Prioritizing a fusion of evidence-based practices and patient empowerment, I strive to tailor my services to meet the unique needs of each individual. My goal is to empower clients to actively engage in their treatment, facilitating a path towards achieving their wellness objectives.
As I continue to navigate the dynamic landscape of mental health, I remain dedicated to staying abreast of the latest developments in the field. Actively participating in ongoing professional development, attending conferences, and staying connected with esteemed professional networks are integral to my commitment to delivering the highest quality of care.
Embracing the evolving role of technology in healthcare, I am attuned to advancements in telehealth and digital tools. This awareness positions me to explore innovative ways of connecting with and supporting clients, particularly within the context of outpatient care.
