Ellen Barker-Anderson, MSN, PMHNP

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Depression, Anxiety, Psychological Trauma, Bipolar Disorder

Ellen is a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner specializing in diagnosing and treating mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, and psychological trauma. She is passionate about working with first responders such as police, firefighters, emergency medical responder, and medical professionals.

Her background has gifted her with unique insights and skills to connect with deeper understanding. She has over twenty-six years of experience in the mental health profession. Before becoming a nurse practitioner, she practiced as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) for sixteen years. After her advanced training, Ellen worked with the VA. This experience allowed her to build clinical expertise in treating PTSD.

Ellen is fascinated by how the science of how medication management intersects with the art of talk therapy. Her approach is holistic, collaborative, and patient-centered.

Ellen strives to create a secure and trusting alliance with her patients. She values the space where provider and patient come together with a unified goal of finding relief —and a happier life.
