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.

There isn't a life manual on how to answer the difficult questions we face. Life can be very difficult at times and these are trying times. It takes courage to acknowledge that certain behaviors or ideas no longer benefit us or our relationships. The silver lining is that we have the power to change our lives. The past does shape us but the road to our future can take us wherever we choose. Therapy is about empowerment and growth without judgment or labels. I'm excited to hear your story and I'm equally excited to help you reach your therapeutic goals.

As a spiritual woman of color, Julouse understands the issues of inequality and finding one's true purpose. She plans to help the patient not only by prescribing but also by providing emotional and spiritual support when needed.

Kat Hammer
Self Pay Rate: $99

Kat Hammer, LCSW

Philosophy of Care 

Kat Hammer is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 26 years of experience working with youth, adults, and families who have experienced trauma in a variety of settings. Her philosophy of care has been influenced by working in the field of sexual and domestic violence, her training in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and feminist theories, as well as her own life experience.

Kat understands how trauma influences stress, our bodies, mental health, and safety in the world. She believes that racism, sexism, and LGBTQ phobia can cause people from being authentic, safe, and whole. We all exist in a larger context and our well-being is not in isolation from our relationships and experiences of others. Each of us deserves to know our worth and value.

Kat recognizes that each of us is the expert of our own life. She utilizes a strength-based, person-first practice that assists youth, individuals, and families in developing skills to improve coping, sense of self, and the mitigation of barriers that keep us from experiencing peace and contentment. She believes that therapy requires work and commitment from both parties. Whether it is to manage anxiety, manage a life change, or address trauma, her interventions are tailored to the presenting issues and the goals of the person seeking support.

"All of us struggle," says Kat. "No human can be on this planet and not face challenges. No one is defined by a single action or event. Yet, all of us need a place to feel safe, to feel challenged, to learn to embrace our authentic selves." Kat believes we all deserve someone in our corner when we feel in doubt. While life will always be challenging, Kat believes we find our value, worth, and purpose when we are less afraid and let ourselves embrace who we are in our entirety by recognizing our strengths and forgiving ourselves for our flaws.

Sean Kweskin
Self Pay Rate: $99

Sean Kweskin, LMHC

Philosophy of Care

My ‘Philosophy of Care’ is consistent with the mission, vision and values of best mental health practices and reflects the belief of achieving excellence in the delivery of client care.

I believe I must be there for our clients and their families. I honor this belief with a commitment to service excellence.

I remember that each client is an individual, a member of a family and a member of a larger community. Each client requires a varied amount of physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual support.

I believe that each client has basic needs, rights, privileges and preferences, which must be respected regardless of race, color, age, sex, creed, national origin, economic status or physical disability.

It is my belief that every client has the right to know the truth about his/her condition and that it is my duty to prepare clients for these truths and for their participation in decisions regarding their care.

To preserve each individual's dignity and to gain his or her trust, I know I must introduce myself and explain my role, use the individual's preferred name, explain my interventions to manage expectations and review the plan of mental health care with him or her regularly.
