Melissa Kanter, PMHNP-MSN
- Nurse Practitioner, Psych/Mental Health
I have always had an interest in health care and behavioral health. My fascination with understanding our world led me to originally pursue degrees in microbiology followed by research in infectious disease. I however found my passion in working with patients in a dual-diagnosis residential treatment center. I believe that all individuals are on a healing journey towards self-actualization and are capable of defining their own goals towards physical, emotional and spiritual health. I love working with all individuals and families, and especially enjoy working with children and adolescents as well as people who have substance use disorders. My goal is to provide holistic and patient centered care guided by evidence and compassion to empower patients to achieve their personal goals and maximize their quality of life.
When not at work, I love spending time with my husband and two dogs hiking, traveling and enjoying other activities in the mountains.
