Prompt Response to Phone Calls

I am a California state licensed Nurse Practitioner in Psychiatric Mental Health and Women‘s Health Care, with 26 years of experience. I have been providing mental health treatment and medication management for 12 years at Affiliated Psychiatric Medical Group. I have recently relocated my new practice which is now with Laguna Psych, Inc.

For some of you, the thought of revealing personal information to someone you don’t know can seem intimidating. As a mental health nurse practitioner who also prescribes medication, I provide psychiatric treatment in a trusting, compassionate, and nonjudgmental setting. Your treatment is highly personalized. I am not only interested in how your medications are working, but I also discuss other areas of your life which can have an impact on your mental health.
