My goal as a psychiatric nurse practitioner is to provide holistic, compassionate, and culturally competent care to diverse populations. Specifically, I aim to work with students to improve their mental health by addressing multidimensional aspects of wellness through development of a trusting therapeutic relationship, thorough assessment, and evidence-based medication management.
