“Only in darkness can you see the starts” – Dr. Martin Luther King. Hi, I am Dr. Barbara Hignite, DNP, APRN. I am a family nurse practitioner with a masters in adult mental health nursing. I have worked in nursing many years, with a significant portion of that time in mental health – mostly adults in a variety of settings. I enjoy going outside at night, taking the dog and spending time looking at the stars and moon as I relax and release the stressors of the day Life has been challenging this year for us all, but my philosophy is we must look forward and search for the stars.
I am offering Telemedicine and Teletherapy through video and/or phone to all who want to be seen during this time. I have immediate openings for Telemedicine and Teletherapy (video or phone sessions) and would be honored to support you during this time of uncertainty.
I recognize the individuality of all my patients and tailor services to meet their unique needs. My clients include adults, adolescents and senior citizens. I continuously broaden the focus on the evaluation and treatment of my clients, which considers and combines their unique social, psychological, and medical characteristics.
