My time spent as certified nurse midwife has taught me the importance of listening, allowing a safe space for individuals who have entrusted me with their care to share their concerns, struggles, hopes, and dreams. As a practicing midwife, I learned how hard it can be for an individual with mental health concerns to connect with a psychiatric provider. For this reason, I returned to school to become a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner.

In my role as a dual-certified certified nurse midwife and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. I incorporate the skills of listening, providing an environment of calmness and safety, to allow clients to share their feelings and concerns regarding their mental health, as well as in other areas of their lives. At times, medications may play a major role in treatment. The decision whether or not to start a medication should be made by the client after a discussion regarding the potential benefits, as well as risks associated with each medication, supporting the client through every step. It is my goal provide education and support to empower my clients to gain the necessary tools to live their best lives.

My educational background includes a BSN from Liberty University in Lynchburg VA, MSN, Certified Nurse Midwife, from the University of Cincinnati, and a post master’s certificate PMHNP from Liberty University. I am currently pursuing a DNP through Chatham University in Pittsburgh, PA.
