About Ruth Alexander

I am a Board-Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with experience working in mental health promotion and prevention with young adults, kids, and families. I enjoy working using a holistic approach, combining psychotherapy, psychopharmacology and lifestyle approaches, to treat each individual’s specific needs, including difficulty with sleep, depression, anxiety, performance difficulties at school or work, or situational stressors. **Please note all appointments are tentative with this provider. To ensure a smooth intake process an office administrator will reach out to you by phone and email with further paperwork to complete before an appointment is confirmed.
