About our practice

Kirsten Book, PMHNP-BC
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

As a woman in recovery from an eating disorder , I know what it feels like to struggle.

Thankfully, I continue to work to maintain my own recovery daily. I have been inspired by those who have supported me along my journey. I use my own experience to continue to draw empathy, compassion, and humility when working with my patients.

I have the unique opportunity to help improve an individual’s mental health, by not only utilizing medications and psychotherapy, but also by instilling hope, which I believe is just as powerful and effective as what any medication can do.

Kirsten in Practice:

It is important we develop a relationship based upon trust and mutual understanding. I will collaborate with other treatment providers to provide optimal care, because I believe medication and therapy work together and complement each other well. 

I work with the patient to help them feel empowered to embark on a positive journey towards recovery. I also strive to prescribe the lowest effective dose of medication, in order to optimally treat each patient.  

I believe the mental health stigma has the power to destroy one’s sense of self-worth and to distort one’s identity. In essence, I believe my own struggles have helped me become a better clinician in order to help you.  

When she’s not at work:

When I am not being of service in my practice, I love spending time with my teenage son and my two loving rescue dogs. I also enjoy my home renovation projects, watching my son play baseball, gardening, spending time with family and friends, and traveling to new places.
