Erik Larson, Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
About Erik Larson
My role as a psychiatric nurse practitioner revolves largely around medication management. Medication is not “one-size fits all” and by spending time getting to know you and your specific concerns, I believe we can find medication that can fit with other lifestyle changes you are making and help you achieve your goals. I feel that it is important that you are informed of your options and that you need to be the ultimate decision-maker in your own care.
I have worked in healthcare for more than 13 years, beginning my career with an EMT certification, becoming a registered nurse, and eventually becoming a board certified nurse practitioner. I have worked in a variety of medical and mental health settings, including many years working in traumatic brain injury rehabilitation. Much of my time as a nurse practitioner has been spent in the Army, where I treated combat and non-combat trauma, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, psychosis, ADHD, and other diagnoses. I worked with various elite units, including the 1st Special Forces Group, 75th Ranger Regiment, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, and functioned as the sole psychiatry provider for the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA.
I am originally from Colorado, and have lived here for most of my life, aside from my time in the Army in Washington State, California, and Texas. I love the active, healthy Colorado lifestyle, and spend much of my spare time enjoying the great outdoors with my wife and children. I am a lifelong skier, backpacker, and outdoorsman and have found great joy introducing my children to these activities.
