Nathaniel Schmidt, DNP, ARNP, PMHNP-BC
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
Dr. Nathan Schmidt is a board certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner dedicated on relieving emotional suffering by addressing its root causes. By focusing on diet, reducing inflammation through healing the gut, supplementation, sleep hygiene, exercise, stress management, cognitive behavioral therapy/mindfulness techniques, and developing a spiritual practice, Dr. Schmidt’s clients can often minimize and slowly discontinue medication usage. He specializes in ketamine-assisted psychotherapy for treatment resistant conditions and also offers counseling in the integration of non-ordinary states of consciousness.
Dr. Schmidt completed his Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree at the University of Oklahoma. He started his nursing career in critical care at Tacoma General Hospital, and transitioned into psychiatric nursing at Harborview Medical Center where he worked in psychiatric emergency and inpatient services. Noticing the gap between medical and psychiatric care and lack of connection between mind and body he went back to school (to become a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner), and received his Doctorate of Nursing Practice from the University of Washington. Before starting a private practice, he worked in a community mental health/addiction treatment setting.
