Kathleen Smerko, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Kathleen Smerko earned her Masters Degree and then a post Masters Nurse Practitioner Certification. Her interest in Mental Health treatment goes back to Nursing school. Kathleen strives to make Mental Health treatment an equal priority in the lives of her clients. Clients who are struggling with issues beyond the reach of therapy alone are her specialty. Combining symptom management and supportive therapy are the means to returning clients to their best selves.

Kathleen uses a bio-psycho-social-sexual-spiritual approach to care. All elements of a person's being are an integral approach to wellness.Nursing has always been holistic in nature and she brings that approach to treatment.

Unmanaged symptoms often get in the way of therapy. Symptoms are the body's way of responding to issues not yet managed. Restoring the chemical balance in the brain can help therapy be more effective.
