Mental health care for parents and parents to be. Se habla español!
I am the Brooklyn Parent Support Clinical Director. In addition to seeing patients, I direct the education and training of student nurse practitioners. Before I became a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, I was a midwife at Bellevue Hospital l for 20 years. Prior to becoming a midwife, I worked with incarcerated victims of intimate partner violence, and at a rape crisis organization.
I am a graduate of Columbia University's midwifery program, and Hunter College of Nursing for my post master's in psychiatric nursing. My perinatal psychiatry training was with Rebecca Feldman and Zucker Hillside Hospital.
My life has shown me that everyone has inner resources that can, when supported, be brought to bear in times of pain. I am accepting new clients for preconception, pregnancy and postpartum medication management and consultation.
