Who I am & What I do
Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
Family Nurse Practitioner
At Three Arrows Mental Health, we work with you and your child to help ensure that they are living their best life possible. There are always struggles in life, however, getting some help along the way makes those struggles more manageable. The provider at Three Arrows has over 20 years of child and adolescent experience and over 5 years of Psychiatric Mental Health experience working with the ages 5-young adults.
My passion is to help treat those individuals with intellectual, development and behavior disabilities along with treating a variety of other mental health needs including ADHD, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, Autism Spectrum, sensory processing disorders. I believe that children are not just smaller adults, they will need their care to be uniquely tailored towards them and what works best.
While I do prescribe medications, this may not be the best option for your child, so we do explore all options. I believe to be successful, we need to work with the whole family unit to ensure long term sustainable success for both child and parents.
Not only am I a provider, I am also blessed to have a child born with Down syndrome and know how hard it can be to obtain quality care in the mental health field for our unique kiddos. My goal is to help you and your child navigate through the process to obtain as much individual success and independence for your child as possible.
I am a dually certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and Family Nurse Practitioner and am board certified by the American Nurses Credential Center as well as the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. Currently, I have narrowed my focus to just treating the child and adolescent population for psychiatric mental health concerns and disorders.
I earned a Masters of Science in Nursing in the Family Nurse Practitioner program (MSN-FNP) and later went on to earn my Post-Masters Certification in Psychiatric Mental Health (PMHNP). I am a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Neuroscience Education Institute and the American Psychiatric Nurse Association and the local Arizona Nurses Association. I am also involved in several other collaboration groups and enjoy taking students and precepting them while they are in school for their Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner practicum.
