As your provider at Mindsense Serenity LLC, I am dedicated to supporting and empowering you to manage your mental health.
I have over 17 years of combined clinical experience as a nurse and nurse practitioner working with individuals with mental health disorders in acute and outpatient clinical/healthcare settings such as hospitals, day treatment centers, hospice facilities, home-care, rehabilitation centers, and long-term care facilities. With this diverse background, I have served as a contributing nurse practitioner at MedStar St. Mary's Hospital providing psychiatric and mental health services on the behavioral, medical and emergency department units.
As a practitioner and prescriber, my approach integrates psychiatric care to include assessments, diagnostic evaluations, medication management, formulation of treatment plans, adjunct psychotherapy and wellness care to foster long-term mental stability. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, behavioral disturbances, emotional and interpersonal relationship issues or any other mental health concern, my goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental and supportive space where you can openly discuss your mental health needs and treatment options.
