Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, PMHNP
My name is Kimberly Levitt. I am a Board Certified Psychiatric NP. I believe in a holistic approach to mental health treatment that prioritizes individual need. I encourage each patient to take an active role in their treatment as this overwhelmingly results in successful outcomes. I have experience in treating ADHD, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and insomnia. I try to fully understand my patients and I provide a therapeutic space for them to feel comfortable sharing their story. I combine medication with talk therapy in each session.
