Nurse Practitioner and Sober Coach
I specialize in women's holistic mental health and sober coaching. I am a board certified nurse practitioner, "Gray Area Drinking" and recovery coach, Ayurveda lifestyle counselor, certified yoga teacher, dancer, and mother of two young boys. I enjoy teaching yoga and dance, and moderating Sober Women meetings. As a working mother and woman in long term recovery, I know the challenges women face in these sensitive areas of life.
My path in healthcare started in 1998 as a medical assistant at a women’s clinic after an alcohol related injury ended my pre-professional dance career. I became a Registered Nurse in 2002, working in perinatal services. In 2008, I earned her Master’s Degree in Science of Nursing and became board certified as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse/nurse practitioner. My experience includes adult internal medicine, reproductive endocrinology, OB/GYN, and I worked in peri-operative services at Yale New Haven Hospital until opening my practice in 2015. I continue to work in adult internal medicine part time.
I enrich my professional and personal practice with studies in Ayurveda, Yoga of Recovery, Heart Based Meditation, mental health nutrition, functional medicine and psychopharmacology. I have taken over 500 hours of yoga teacher trainings, and have been a certified yoga teacher since 2010.
