Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
Racquel Weinberger, MSN, NP, PMHNP-BC

I am a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.

I have extensive experience, and my primary focus is in ADHD, depression, anxiety, and OCD. My approach is holistic in which I strive to address all aspects of the mind, body, and environment, which impacts our lives. I treat the person, not the disorder, with warmth and understanding. My goal is to form an individualized plan of care for every client, with client involvement and interprofessional collaboration.

Together with medication management, I incorporate solution-oriented strategies and motivational interviewing techniques. I make sure to stay current on new treatments and practices so my clients can achieve their best versions of themselves. I encourage understanding of the treatment plan, symptoms, and provide open and honest communication.

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
Avigail Spetner, MSN, NP, PMHNP-BC

I am a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with experience providing mental health care to diverse populations.

I have experience treating a wide range of conditions including anxiety, insomnia, depression, OCD, and PTSD. My practice incorporates an integrative psychiatric approach, including holistic mental health treatment. Emphasis on lifestyle awareness is key to my practice, and this includes sleep, nutrition, exercise, and managing stress.

Treatment sessions usually focus on medication management and may incorporate solution-oriented psychotherapeutic techniques and cognitive behavioral therapy strategies. I implement a patient-centered approach to therapy and emphasize that patients should be partners in their care and work together with their provider to build the right treatment plan.
