My name is Christy and I am a board certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with prescriptive authority. I am very passionate about implementing a holistic approach to patient care by using both conventional as well as complementary treatment while providing a safe, nonjudgmental welcoming environment. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults in a variety of settings from inpatient facilities to outpatient facilities. I specialize in treating across the lifespan with a variety of mental health disorders utilizing both conventional and integrative approaches. I completed my Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program at The Ohio State University College of Nursing. I am also an alumnus of New York University where I graduated from their Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. I like to implement the least invasive approach in treatment and go slow. I also can help you develop lifestyle changes and work together towards your mental health goals.
