Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
Throughout my career, I recognized the need for quality psychiatric care and the importance of having an integrative holistic approach. I have learned and witnessed firsthand the need for more mental health providers to improve on the lack of education, resources, and awareness, all of which are vital points of interest that are a shortfall in the community due to stigmas, shortage of outreach, and support. I want to help individuals reach his or her fullest potential.
What I want my patients to know about me:
Mental health, to me, is like a road map. Good mental health consists of a combination of constituents such as physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. As a nurse practitioner, one should take caution when initiating care so that the patient holistically receives care. This outlook will promote optimum outcomes for the client. Depending upon the path chosen, the client can get lost or be successful. My goal is to help the client navigate onto the right track, not as a driver, but as a co-pilot. I am caring, a good listener, and utilize evidence-based information to guide care.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I have a great love for pastry arts. On any given day, I enjoy baking cakes, experimenting with different recipes, and making them my own. In addition to baking, I love traveling abroad and experiencing different cultures.
