Alexandra Pales, PMHNP-BC, MSN
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
I meet with clients on varying schedules. I offer morning, afternoon, and evening appointments. I meet with individuals in person. I offer every other week and monthly appointments.
I enjoy helping patients finding their own healing and being witness to their journey. My focus is on de-centering healthcare, wherein the patient guides the process and their autonomy and voice are prioritized. I have focused my career towards psychedelic assisted therapy after seeing many being labeled as "Treatment resistant" in mental health. Seeing rather, that individuals are struggling with finding meaning in their lives, or trauma, or exhaustion of living in a life to simply survive. I have moved away from the healthcare position of pathologizing individual's struggles and challenges when it is a societal experience, and collective poor quality of life.
