Christina Pike, ARNP

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

I am always learning. ALWAYS! My open tabs on my computer are full of journal articles I want to read. Learning brings me joy. This is partly why working in psychiatry is so rewarding. Every person is a unique opportunity for me to think creatively. Not just because everyone is different, but each person wants something different. I am also willing to be wrong, learn from that and change. I can do better, always. Just like all of you, I am constantly learning and growing. I believe that there are hundreds of ways to wellness and all we need to do is find the right ones for you. I do not take a traditional view of psychiatry but instead, I see it as just one of the many tools we have that contribute to overall health. My work is a collaborative mix of art and science with the understanding that the most important part of the equation is what you desire, as you are the foremost authority on the life you would like to cultivate. To help people reach their goals I use a mix of genetics, nutrition, herbs, medications, and labs. I enjoy working in a collaborative environment to bring the highest quality of care possible. That means that all you must do is bring your desire to change and your dedication to the process.
