Nurse Practitioner, a degree for nurses who complete master’s-level training and board certification in order to practice medicine. As nurses, NPs bring a special sort of caring to their work. Alternate degrees include ANP (Adult Nurse Practitioner), FNP (Family Nurse Practitioner), and WHNP (Women's Health Nurse Practitioner).
I believe that building a strong patient-provider relationship is the first and most important step in my patients’ journey toward good health and well-being. Healthcare is not one-size-fits-all, therefore, I use an evidence-based approach to develop a plan with each of my patients to help them reach their individual health goals. In my experience, emotional trauma, socioeconomic factors, and poor coping strategies often derail treatment adherence, health planning, and other preventive care measures. For this reason, I’m passionate about mental health. I believe that emotional and mental well-being are the foundations of good health.
