About Jennifer Lake

Jennifer Lake - Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in Boulder, CO As a psychiatric nurse practitioner my main focus is on medication management. I look forward to the day when treating mental health loses it’s stigma and is seen as any other health challenge. I have had experience for the last nine years of seeing people greatly helped with appropriate medication. I believe that exercise, meditation, eating well and having good sleep habits in addition to having meaning in one’s life are important factors for good mental health.

I work with those who have depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD and PTSD. I was with Mental Health Partners for five years and the Johnson Depression Center for almost three years. I have been a registered nurse for 40 years, working in many different settings. I have been a psychotherapist for the pas 21 years.

I am a Colorado native and love the outdoors. I am in a loving relationship with my husband and we enjoy biking, hiking, backpacking, swimming and being with friends and family. We have two dogs and two cats.
