Anton Georgiev, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Anton Georgiev is a culturally diverse, board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) focused on a holistic treatment approach. Anton began his psychiatric career in 2013 working for River Point Behavioral Health and Memorial Hospital, both major inpatient psychiatric facilities in Jacksonville, Florida. Since 2019 Anton has been gaining experience as an outpatient psychiatric resident, while retaining his inpatient nurse duties. His experience includes the emergency stabilization psychiatric unit, addiction unit, geriatric psychiatry, and adolescence psychiatry. In addition to direct inpatient and outpatient care, Anton has 5 years of experience as a group therapy leader as part of his registered nurse duties while working in Memorial Hospital.

Anton completed his Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at Florida State College of Jacksonville and his Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and PMHNP at Eastern Kentucky University. Anton is a strong supporter of incorporating therapy into client treatment, for its potential to unlock the previously unused or forgotten abilities to self-manage and control feelings, reactions, emotions, and fears. He accepts the benefits of alternative and complementary treatments in his client’s ongoing efforts to be a well-balanced person. He is aware of his client’s personal choice of treatment and their cultural and spiritual beliefs, which have the potential to greatly affect the treatment and the therapeutic relationship between provider and patient.

Anton’s goal is to treat the whole person, giving each individual tailored and personalized care, specific to their culture, lifestyle, belief system, and capacity. He is a firm believer in the philosophy of “sound mind-sound body”, therefore his care explores the connection between psychiatric and medical aspects. Anton invests the time to explain, educate, and provide his clients with all of the needed information to make the best possible choice. He understands that a treatment is never static; it is an ongoing and highly dynamic process, involving honest communication and effort from both provider and client.
