Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN)

Professional History
Abbey has worked in the mental health field since 2014. As an RN, she gathered her experience from Belmont Pines Hospital, where she had experience in inpatient care, partial hospitalization, residential care, and assessments and referrals.

“I am currently able to manage medications for children and adolescents, with that being my specialty. Within time I will also be able to manage medications for the adult population.”

Professional Objectives
“I strive to provide the best care possible for my clients. I do this by always expanding my knowledge and seeking other types of care when needed, such as counseling, case management, school referrals for IEP, etc. I feel it is also important to establish a trusting, working relationship between my clients to adequately manage their care in the best way possible. Mental Health has always been my specialty and the area of nursing I have a great deal of compassion for. I put my clients first in every aspect of my care; their health and safety are my priority. I will always better myself as a nurse practitioner and person to give my clients the utmost care.”

Theoretical Orientation
“When caring for my clients I use a holistic approach, gathering information on the psychiatric symptoms along with somatic and medical symptoms. I utilize my resources such as ordering lab work or counseling to help in the diagnosis and medication process.”
