My approach to improving the mental health of others includes:
I graduated from Western Wyoming Community College and became an RN in 1996. I began my nursing career in long term care, and then became a Med/Surg/Oncology nurse in a community hospital. I worked for many years as a Cardiac Stepdown/PCU nurse, and worked as a travel throughout the US for several years. Prior to becoming a Psychiatric NP, I worked as a charge nurse, float pool supervisor and admin rep/house supervisor at a Level 1 Trauma Center.
After 20-plus years working as a nurse in many different settings, I am acutely aware of the unique pressures and stress that nurses, physicians and other healthcare professionals experience. I am passionate about providing discreet, private mental health care and support for nurses, physicians, licensed healthcare professionals and first responders. Compassion fatigue, burn out, secondary trauma, substance abuse and suicide are all too common in our profession and I am dedicated to providing the support and care that nurses, doctors and healthcare providers deserve.
