Jill Ginisi, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care 

Jill Ginisi is a psychiatric nurse practitioner in the state of Massachusetts. Jill has a diverse background  spending several years as a registered nurse floating to different specialties advancing her knowledge.  Jill spent her last 3 years as a psychiatric nurse where her passion resides prior to obtaining her Master  

of Science in Nursing with a specialty in psychiatry from Regis College. As a psychiatric nurse  practitioner, Jill will provide clinical assessment and therapeutic care to adults who are seeking help with  their mental health.  

Jill can assess, diagnose, and treat mental health needs of patients. Jill believes developing a trusting,  therapeutic relationship with strong communication is the key to success. Jill likes to view the individual as a whole and understands each person is different and can have unique needs. Although, medication  management is Jill’s specialty, that is just “a piece to the puzzle” as she feels being self-aware of the  matter and incorporating different techniques can be beneficial. The overall well-being of someone’s  mental health should be treated no different than a medical diagnosis.  

Jill seeks to establish a professional yet caring relationship with you to help identity your needs, educate  and incorporate you into your goals with a treatment plan to help you achieve the desired outcome. Jill  believes living a good quality and meaningful life is a significant priority.
