Laura Compton, PMHNP-BC, is a board-certified Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. She has more than a decade of experience working with clients with complex acute and chronic mental health needs. Laura strives to blend science- and evidence-based diagnostic and treatment strategies with the Recovery Model of care, which sees the client as a unique person rather than a constellation of symptoms and helps clients achieve their goals through shared decision-making and shared responsibility.

Laura is a member of the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH) and the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), and is committed to creating a supportive, affirming, and empowering environment for clients of all sizes, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, faiths, ages, and abilities.

Laura completed her Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (MSN) graduate education at the University of California, San Francisco, and her undergraduate nursing education at Community College of Allegheny County (Pittsburgh, PA) and California University of Pennsylvania. She is also a veteran of the United States Air Force.
