EXPERIENCE

I’ve always had a special interest and passion for the mental health field which led me to dedicating my entire nursing career to mental health. My experience first started in 2008 by working as a registered nurse on an adult inpatient behavioral health unit in Des Moines. I loved working in the inpatient setting, but after a few years, I wanted to do more for my patients and decided to advance my education and career. I have now worked in an outpatient, clinic setting for over five years providing medication management for adult clients from all walks of life.

SPECIALTIES

Depression, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, thought disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD), sleep disorders.

MY APPROACH

As a provider, I strongly believe in a collaborative approach. I will provide recommendations based on a client’s report, but I also value a client’s opinions, feedback and apprehensions regarding medication management. I believe if the process is felt more as team versus a provider-client approach, there is greater success for all. I am also a firm believer in providing thorough education on medications; indications for use, how they work, and possible side effects. I feel if a client has a better understanding of what to expect from medication management, there are less frustrations which provides a more positive outcome.
