About Us

Building on each other's strength is the most human thing we can do for each other.

Having lived in Las Vegas for over 30 years, I have seen our city progress and grow at a rapid pace.  People’s lives have become more complex.  Existing traditional systems of care as well as the policies no longer serves the community well.

As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, I believe that I carry with me a huge responsibility to deliver the best possible care to clients.

Valuing the client -patient relationship trust takes time to develop specially in mental health.  At Empowered Choices, you won’t feel rushed, dismissed or lost. We will work together in creating a treatment plan that would work best for you and your needs. 

.Empowered Healing, in order to remove the barriers to receiving the right type of care, is a self pay clinic. My goal is to offer you an affordable range of options for your care that won’t focus solely on medications. I will empower you to make good decisions about your overall health. 

 I am looking forward to meeting you. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey to wellness!
