Dr. Andrew Richardson
As a board certified Nurse Practitioner by the ANCC in both Psychiatric Mental Health and Adult-Geriatric Primary Care, I am driven to help individuals explore mental wellness and find treatment to improve their quality of life.
With over five years in clinical practice, my treatment specialties include anxiety, depression, and psychosis. I also treat a wide range of issues in adults, children, and teens, including: ADHD, bipolar disorder, chronic illness, men's issues, obesity, sleep or insomnia, trauma and PTSD, and weight loss.
My formal training took place at the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Chicago Medicine, and the Inpatient Psychiatric Unit at Mercy Hospital & Medical Center. I have extensive training in psychiatry which included the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of acute and chronic mental health conditions, providing additional crisis management when needed.
Further, my background includes a Bachelor's of Science in Exercise Physiology, a Master's of Science in Nursing, and a Doctorate of Nursing Practice in both Psychiatric Mental Health and Adult-Geriatric Primary Care.
