Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse

Integrative, Collaborative, Client-centered

Adrienne is a board-certified, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP). She is dedicated to collaborative, evidence-based, and integrative care for adults, adolescents, and children. 

Adrienne considers all aspects of her clients’ life and approaches client care with compassion and from a biopsychosocial-spiritual framework. In addition to prescribing mental health medications if appropriate, she incorporates brief psychotherapy and considers potential nutritional deficiencies and lifestyle factors when creating your comprehensive treatment plan. 

Prior to returning to graduate school, Adrienne provided patient-centered and skilled care as a registered mental health nurse at the Eating Recovery Center acute inpatient unit. Her experience as both a floor and charge nurse, and now as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), has given Adrienne a unique perspective on care for those struggling with eating disorders and co-occurring concerns. In addition to her expertise in eating disorders, Adrienne is experienced in treating trauma, mood and anxiety disorders, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Hear from Adrienne

I firmly believe everyone has the capacity for healing. I see medication as an adjunct to therapy and not as a sole intervention. Because there are so many factors that affect our emotional and mental wellbeing, I believe in taking an integrative and collaborative approach to your mental and physical health. Consideration of factors such as sleep, potential nutrient deficiencies, lifestyle and stress, genetics, and of course  mood, are critical when developing and a comprehensive treatment plan. I truly believe this type of collaborative and comprehensive plan will allow you to thrive.
