Meet Nurse Practitioner Mone't

“Hi. My name is Nurse Practitioner Mone’t. I am a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. More importantly, I am committed to providing mental health care for adolescent girls and women in a collaborative environment that honors the uniqueness of each person.”

Women’s mental health is a serious issue. Millions of women suffer in silence, often for years. Women don’t seek help because they’re unaware, ashamed, or feel isolated. We need to open the door, create support and awareness and end the stigma so women can heal with dignity.

“Health is not a destination but a journey. I am here to help you along that path. It’s time to take care of you!”
