Mental health care for parents and parents to be. Se habla español!
I am an ANCC board certified nurse practitioner of psychiatry with specialized training in perinatal psychopharmacology and psychotherapy. Prior to working in mental health I was a neonatal and pediatric critical care nurse for six years.
I became an advocate for maternal mental health screening and intervention in pediatric intensive care units . I loved this work, and it has been the foundation for my interest in perinatal psychiatry. I went on to earn my masters in psychiatric mental health nursing at New York University, completing clinical training at NYU, and Bellevue Hospital. I also completed specialized training at Zucker Hillside Hospital in the Department of Perinatal Psychiatry.
I join Brooklyn Parent Support after experience working at Columbia University (2019- 2021) as part of an integrative women’s mental health team embedded in obstetrics and gynecology, where I provided psychotherapy and medication management to preconception, pregnant and postpartum clients. I have a special interest in working with individuals coping with stress related to infertility and medical complications during the perinatal period, including, high-risk pregnancy, fetal diagnosis, congenital anomalies, NICU stays and transitions home after a NICU hospitalization.
I am in network with United, Oxford, Oscar, Aetna and Cigna.
