Speciality Board:

I'm a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) fully dedicated to helping individuals struggling with mental health conditions likedepression, anxiety, PTSD, and substance use disorders (SUDs). I believe intreating everyone with dignity, safety, and respect. No judgment here!

I graduated from Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science with honors as a PMHNP. I've worked with the State of California's Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for over seven years as a registered nurse, and concurrently, I spent five years working at an inpatient substance use rehab center. My expertise covers a range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, and SUDs. My mission is to make mental health care accessible to everyone who needs it. I work with patients who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, or SUDs.

My approach is integrative,evidence-based, and holistic, so we'll explore various treatment options to find the best fit for you.

Outside of work, I love spending quality time with my family and enjoying life's simple moments. I'm also a big fanof reading and watching movies, especially those based on true stories with a psychological twist.
