Debra Sowers, DNP, PMHNP

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Debra is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and has experience treating a variety of conditions including depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, mood disorders, and schizophrenia. She has worked in a hospital setting, outpatient clinic and in a community mental health setting. She values getting to know her patient by active listening and with a nonjudgmental attitude as this promotes respect and opens the door for communication and understanding of the impact mental health symptoms on one’s quality of life and function.
