Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
My approach to patient care is evidence-based, holistic, and informed only by a genuine understanding of your unique story and lived experience. As a patient advocate, I value your voice and will work collaboratively to develop a treatment plan that best optimizes your overall health, happiness, and mind-body synchronicity.
As both a licensed pharmacist and psychiatric nurse practitioner, Dr. Hemmeger approaches patient care from a unique lens, strategically blending psychopharmacology with supportive psychotherapy to optimize her clients’ health, happiness, and mind-body synchronicity. As a feminist and social justice advocate, she is committed to creating a safe, inclusive, and empowering space for all who enter her door. While she enjoys working with students of diverse cultural and clinical backgrounds, she especially enjoys treating unipolar and bipolar depression, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, gender dysphoria/LGBTQIA+ related concerns, trauma, and first episode psychosis. For self-care, she enjoys practicing yoga and mindfulness, tending to her indoor house plants, traveling and photographing the world around her, and spending quality time with her husband, Alex, and her two cats, Rory and Remi.
