Sherri Osborne, PMHNP-BC, GNP-BC
Philosophy of Care
Sherri Osborne is a board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) and a board certified Gerontological Nurse Practitioner (GNP-BC) who has 12 years of experience in working with adults seeking help with medication management for mental health conditions.
As a provider who has personally experienced trauma, domestic violence, and the effects of being the child of an alcoholic parent and a military family, Sherri understand the issues surrounding these and the importance of resiliency. She also has a crisis-based background and sees the effects that mental health and substance abuse have on the individual and their families. Sherri believes that faith, in whatever manner you choose to practice, helps give one strength to become a survivor and not a victim.
Sherri completed her Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) at Guilford Technical Community College, her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at Winston-Salem State University, and both her Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and her PMHNP at the University of South Alabama. Sherri utilizes a holistic approach to mental health conditions. The goal is to ensure that one’s physical health has been ruled out as a contributing factor. Medication is only a piece of providing care and in combination with counseling can be effective in improving a person’s quality of life. Sherri's goal is never to "dumb and numb" someone, but to have the least amount of medicine needed to help manage symptoms.
Sherri seeks to establish a relationship with you that is based on warmth, trust, caring, and integrity in order to promote mental wellness and recovery for you which in turn improves your quality of life. Everyday life can be hard and stressful and having someone there to support you in that journey can mean a lot. The goal is for each day to be the best it can be fo
