PMHNP & Owner
I am a certified Family Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I got my nursing degree from Boise State, Masters of Nursing as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner from Case Western Reserve University and a Postmasters Degree as a Mental Health Nurse Practitioner from State University of New York at Stonybrook. I have worked in the mental health field in Boise for the last 20 years. I worked at several different agencies before opening Integrity Mental Health in 2018. Over the last 20 years I have seen all ages and diagnoses. I have spent the majority of that time seeing chronically mentally ill patients and children with mental health issues. At this time in my career I am wanting to focus more of my time and energy on seeing children and families. I have spent many years working with children who are on the autism spectrum and they have a special place in my heart.
I also love to work with children with ADHD, anxiety disorders, depression or intellectual disabilities. I cherish everyone I see in my practice because I see them as someone special who adds something to my day and to our world. I have my trusted companion Finn by my side as he is also my office therapy dog. He is a 100 lb Goldendoodle who loves everyone.
Outside of work I adore spending time with my family-my husband Dan, Molly (beagle mix), Rocky (boxer), Chinchi (a chinchilla) and Finn. My stepdaughters are grown and out of the house so I miss seeing them everyday. I am an avid fan of BSU football. I enjoy corny movies and science fiction. My favorite hobbies are cooking, travel and scuba diving or snorkeling (but only in tropical waters).
I am a board-certified Psychiatric/ Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I am experienced assessing and treating patients aged 16-65 for a variety of psychiatric conditions including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, PTSD, ADHD and psychotic disorders. I have additional experience in treating late adolescents and young adults (age 16-25) in the first onset of psychosis and other mental illness.
I enjoy helping patients make progress toward wellness and recovery. My goal is to provide care that is client-centered and focused on individual strengths. I believe that it is important to work collaboratively to develop a treatment plan that is founded in evidence-based practice and also addresses the needs and values of each client.
Medical Assistant/Care Manager
I was born and raised in the Boise area and have a deep passion for mental health and addiction recovery. It is my goal in life to serve and help others, and I have plenty of life experience that makes me empathetic and relatable to all of those I work with. I’m the dedicated mother of an exuberant 4-year-old boy, and most of my free time is spent exploring with my child or reading any book that is set in front of me. I believe every patient has a unique story worth telling, and each of those stories helps me to learn and grow as a human being.
I have been a Medical Assistant for 6 years. I'm originally from Wyoming, but I moved to Pocatello as a teenager. I married my husband over 30 years ago, and we eventually moved to the Treasure Valley in 1999 to raise our family together. I love spending time with my family (my husband, daughter, son, daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters), cooking, riding four wheelers, and spoiling my two dogs.
