NICE TO MEET YOU. YOU ARE DEFINITELY IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
I'm Joanne, the passionate founder of The Mental Wellness Releaf Way.
Integrative Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
I am a Syracuse, Emory and Brandman University educated, board certified adult and pediatric psychiatric nurse practitioner who has spent over 25 years in the specialities of gynecology, obstetrics, neonatal and psychiatry. I am also the innovater of the now viral community healthcare model Nurse Practitioners on WheelsTM, the first tiny house psychiatric clinic on wheels. Providing exceptional care for the modern women and her family is literally my life's work.
In the many years of treating patients at my priviate practice, Dr. Joanne Psychiatry NP, I started noticing a pattern - your mood affects your food and your food affects your mood. In other words, what you eat affects how you feel and how you feel affects what you eat.
Many of my anxious or depressed patients ate too much or too little and most definitely the wrong things for their nutritional type. Their bodies were also failing their mental health due to other culprits and deficits (we can talk about these during your first visit). Because of this, I made a pivot to treat mental health challenges differently by becoming certified in holistic mental health, seeking additional training in reproductive mental health, herbal and culinary medicine.
The final outcome was creating a clinic focused on mental health care that matches your lifestyle. Many of our patients have not needed to take prescription medicine because we ask the right questions to determine the true cause of the decline of your mental health and eliminate it. Let's work together to get you well again. Become a member today for "The Better Holistic Experience".
