Professional statement

Ellie Kenemer, PMHNP-BC is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner offering tele-health and in-person services based in Nashville, Tennessee. In session, she and her clients take an all encompassing approach toward whole-picture wellness focusing on mental health, physical health, fulfilling activity, financial security, work/life balance, self-care, communication skills, and healthy interpersonal dynamics.

Sessions are tailored to each individual's specific therapeutic needs. In a warm and nonjudgmental environment, clients will explore the many intertwined and influential aspects of their lives to identify areas for growth, insight, and change. Ellie's background of experience in behavior modification, psychopharmacology (medication management), physical assessment, psychiatric genetic panel interpretation, and individual psychotherapy lends itself to a holistic approach to treatment.

While sessions are primarily therapy based, Ellie finds it valuable to identify when medications are an appropriate and useful tool to help clients manage their symptoms. She will never push medications on a client, and is always open to discussing both pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions for symptoms. When medications are necessary, it is important to her to focus on utilizing the fewest medications at the lowest doses for effective symptom management.


Message to clients

My goal is to create a therapeutic environment that fosters trust, safety, exploration, insight, strength, and direction. No matter where you are in your journey toward wellness, I will meet you there, and we will move forward together. In telling your story and helping me understand your experiences and challenges, we will identify and explore the barriers that are blocking your growth. You will make impactful life changes through achievable goals, and uproot the toxicity in your thoughts, patterns, or behaviors that keeps you from thriving.

I look forward to the opportunity to connect with you on your journey toward whole picture wellness!
