About

I make a great effort to provide safe client care and I go above and beyond to make sure all clients are comfortable while receiving care. I always include each client in their personal plan of care to make sure there goals are met effectively while still maintaining boundaries. I strive to make sure each client is successful with their own personal goals for treating their mental health concerns. When I’m not providing care, I enjoy spending time with my family.

I am a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner through AANP and I graduated from Frontier Nursing University with my MSN and Drexel University for my RN-BSN. I provide mental health care & wellness to clients here at Positive Reset Mental Health Services and I am licensed in NJ.

I have practiced in various mental health areas including residential, locked units, addictions, and outpatient settings with over ten years of experience providing care to children through geriatrics. I’ve always had a passion for the mental health specialty in caring for clients and providing positive client outcomes for themselves and their family.
