Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners

Jennifer Lake - Psychiatric Medication Provider in Boulder, ColoradoHi, I’m Jennifer Lake, Psychiatric-Mental He­­­alth Nurse Practitioner in Boulder, CO.

As a psychiatric nurse practitioner I believe we can work together collaboratively to decide if taking medication will be helpful and if so, which one will help your symptoms. You will be provided with education and information about medications and what positive changes to look forward to. We can also discuss lifestyle changes you are interested to improve your mental health. To learn more about how I work, visit my about page.

Erik Larson - Psychiatric Medication Provider in Boulder, ColoradoHi, I’m Erik Larson, Psychiatric-Mental He­­­alth Nurse Practitioner in Boulder, CO.

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 are the ultimate decision-maker in your own care. To learn more about how I work, visit my about page.
