I have over 10 years of experience in both the medical and psychiatric field, where my passion for mental health led me to practice psychiatry full time as a PMHNP-BC. My job is to educate and make recommendations, but I want people to feel empowered about their choice in treatment. I believe that creating a safe space for open dialogue about fears and concerns is paramount and allows me to educate, encourage and empower the people I treat.

Hi! I'm Nneka, and I work with Mood Health (www.moodhealth.com). My interest in mental health started early in life as I saw close family members and friends struggle with mental health. I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives and decrease the stigma around mental health, especially for those in the African American community. Having worked in private practice as well as in inpatient facilities seeing patients of all ages, I believe in the power of educating patients so that they can make informed decisions about their treatment. I know that taking care of your mental health can be scary, but I aim to make it feel easier.

Hi! I'm Liz, and I work with Mood Health (www.moodhealth.com). Growing up, I had an aunt who was in and out of psychiatric hospitals due to depression. I used to love visiting her and the other patients, and my interest in connecting with people in mental health developed at a very young age because of this. With 15 years in the field, I bring experience from working in inpatient units, addiction units, and crisis stabilization sites including psychiatric emergency rooms and psychiatric urgent care centers. I'm passionate about body positivity in the mental health space and believe that mental health shouldn't be stigmatized.
