Clinical Leadership

Dr. Shorten, DNP, APRN, PMHNP-BC

Owner and Operator

“Life is difficult. Finding a prescribing mental health professional who understands your needs shouldn’t be. My approach to prescribing has always been a “Patient first” mentality. It is a non-judgmental, team approach that empowers you to become “you” again. I’m passionate about the work I do to help individuals restore their mood and improve their lives. With a great sense of urgency I will begin working with you to build a solid foundation of complete and lasting recovery from mental illness.”
