Who am I? 

I am a husband and father to two awesome boys. When I am not camping with my family, going to music festivals with my wife or kayaking on nearby waterways throughout central virginia.I have 14 years of experience in the acute psychiatric/mental health field, in various roles. I graduated from University of Virginia Graduate School of Nursing with my Masters Degree with a focus on Psychiatric/Mental Health. Currently, I work full time as a psychiatric nurse practitioner in an emergency department and general hospital setting and have evening availability to see clients for medication management.

Working full time as a psychiatric nurse practitioner in the acute hospital setting is very fulfilling, but in my full time role I am often unable to build ongoing relationships and help clients meet their long term goals. I have desired to join an outpatient practice whose vision and values align with mine for some time, and I am so glad to be part of Abundant Life Partners, where I look forward to building long term relationships with my clients and walking with you on your mental wellness journey. 

I love working with:

  • All age groups across the lifespan
  • Individuals struggling with substance use and addiction
  • ADHD
  • Trauma
  • Mood Disorders
  • Psychosomatic Medicine
  • Neurocognitive Disorders

Some of my favorite approaches include: 

  • Medication Management
  • Medication Assisted Treatment for substance use disorders (MAT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI)
  • Mindfulness
  • Relapse prevention
  • Crisis Management
