"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."
- Maya Angelou
My journey into caring for children and families started from a young age. As my two younger brothers were being treated before their passing, I was inspired by so many of the amazing actions of our health care team that cared for our family. This journey took me in many directions including working in both an in-patient hospital and outpatient pediatric setting, caring for various populations including children in foster care, pediatric refugees, teens, adopted children, and high risk vulnerable children with a history of trauma. Included in the 15 plus years of building knowledge in pediatrics, I received specialized mental and behavioral health training to care for children and families with trauma. I am also credentialed as a "Primary Care Mental Health Specialist" and also endorsed as a New York State "Infant Mental Health Specialist." I serve on various community board of director positions, grants, and holistic partners that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts while also advocating for children and families. My passion for caring for children and families has shaped my many years of practice and thus created Serenity Cove Pediatrics NP-LLC.
Serenity Cove Pediatrics (SCP) was created with the foundation of providing inclusive trauma informed care for families. We understand the importance of putting the child or teenager at the center by providing holistic care for the entire family. In order to meet that need, we aim to respectfully provide safe quality care with specialized case management, community collaboration, coordination, and advocacy to promote resilience for families. We recognize the critical importance of diversity, equity and inclusion and integrate that lens into practice and in community advocacy. We are currently seeing all patients virtually to allow for family flexibility.
Serenity Cove Pediatrics uses Athena as its electronic health record. This is a secure database platform to process, maintain, and protect health information under the guidance of the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). SCP provides a patient portal where you can easily schedule appointments, ask questions, request refills, and have access to other important health information. Using Athena also allows me partner and collaborate with other members of your health care team easily.
During our first Telehealth meeting, I will meet with you and your child to determine the best course of action. Partnering with your therapist, primary care provider, school, and other members of your health care team, we can talk about treatment, recommendations, and providing medication and medication management for any unresolved issues.
Serenity Cove Pediatrics does not currently take insurance however most insurance plans do allow for reimbursement. You will have access to all billing statements on your patient portal in which you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. I would strongly encourage you to contact your insurance prior to your first appointment for this information.
