My name is Jozette.
My journey to becoming a psychiatric nurse practitioner began during my six years as a cardiac nurse. I realized quickly that I wasn’t treating just my patient, but their entire family as well. Emotions were always running high; I saw anxiety and depression about diagnosis and prognosis, and the powerless, out-of-control feeling of being hospitalized. I found myself talking to them about their sadness and fears just as much as I was about their new heart medications.
I sought out mental health care for myself when my wife and I became parents. The traditional model for perinatal depression and anxiety didn’t quite fit for a person who didn’t carry and deliver the child. I had so many fears. Would my baby bond with me? Would my spouse really see me as an equal parent? Would the rest of the world see me as a babysitter? Did I even know how to take care of a baby? How would my life change with a baby? I even feared dropping her. I’m serious…it was bad, and I felt like I had nobody to talk to about it. I never want anyone to go through that.
I made it through to the other side, and I’m now a mom of three—well, five if you count the two kittens. With their support, I can now help others like me. Let me help you face the challenges that come with the big transitions that life brings. Your feelings matter—let’s talk about them. Contact me today, and let’s get started. I look forward to meeting you.
