Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Over the past 20 years working in mental healthcare, I have enjoyed the great opportunity to serve patients and their families. As a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), I worked first at the San Francisco VA Medical Center, through their post-graduate residency program, and then for the past several years, I worked with medically underserved populations throughout New Mexico, first in person and then via telehealth. Prior to becoming a psychiatric NP, I have worked in counseling extensively, which culminated in serving as the clinical director of an eating disorder treatment program. I have lived and worked internationally: teaching in a regular faculty position at the University of Heidelberg in Germany, volunteering on an ashram in rural India, and guest lecturing at a medical school’s psychiatry department in Ukraine. Earned degrees include an MDiv from Yale, an MA and PhD from Vanderbilt, an MSN (with a concentration in genomics) from UCSF, as well as relevant certifications. My dissertation explored late-life developmental psychology.
