The overall well-being of someone’s  mental health should be treated no different than a medical diagnosis.

Wendy Barry, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Wendy Barry is a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner who has over 14 years of nursing experience.  Wendy completed her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing degree at Fitchburg College, which is now Fitchburg University, in Fitchburg Massachusetts.  She completed her Masters of Science in Nursing at Regis College in Weston Massachusetts. Wendy bases her treatment on the biopsychosocial model and evidence-based practices.

Wendy understands that medication is only a part of the picture within the biopsychosocial model of mental health.  Her practice in medication is "start low and go slow", which is considered a standard of care in psychiatry.  She is a strong supporter of collaborative care and will work with other providers to maintain client's optimal health.  As a prescriber Wendy takes on the role of consult and encourages clients to feel confident in their psychiatric care.  She does this by asking questions, answering questions, and encouraging clients take the lead in their care.

Wendy treats clients with depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD and bipolar disorder.
