“I have been working in the healing arts, specifically recovery and psychiatric medicine for over twenty years. I am driven by the idea that we can create a new paradigm in mental health that is outcome driven, yet patient focused, within a framework of recovery for all. This concept is the foundation of NOVO Healthcare, LLC. We will not stop until each patient has achieved his or her greatest potential and fully lives into recovery from whatever diagnoses or human conditions that have brought them to our door for help.”
“I am committed to providing excellent nursing care to every patient. I will utilize the nursing process to assist my patients in achieving optimum mental health. I also practices the art of the therapeutic use of self and the sciences of nursing, psychology and biology to deliver evidenced-based, patient-centered care in a professional setting.”
“My mission is to provide quality services to all individuals, of any age, enabling them to live, work, and participate in their communities. I am committed to providing superior mental health services to our patients and their families.”
“I am a graduate of Vanderbilt University School of Nursing. I have been practicing since 2010, specializing in child and adolescent mental health treatment, and have worked in a variety of settings including private practice, community mental health, crisis stabilization, and correctional care. My focus is medication management for children and adolescents with treatment needs including: attention deficit, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorders. My family and I are Nashville natives. My wife, Misty, and I reside locally and recently welcomed our first child!”
“After graduating from the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing I began to recognize my passion for helping individuals achieve emotional wellness. This led me to further my education and pursue Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner training at Vanderbilt University in 2016. My priority is providing each patient with a compassionate space where they can share their story and work towards achieving their mental health goals. I believe each individual is equipped with the ability to live at their fullest potential when provided with the appropriate evidenced-based tools and support. It is my joy to come along side you in this journey.”
