He/Him/HisPsychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, PMHNP Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Erik Morris is a native of Oregon. Growing up in Eugene, and going to the University of Oregon for his undergrad in business and politics, he is very familiar with the Pacific North West.
After college, Erik found himself in Los Angeles studying acting, writing, structural bodywork, kundalini yoga, and meditation. There, he found his calling would be to integrate his diverse skillset and to one day own and operate a wellness center.
Mr. Morris moved to Manhattan and attended the University of Columbia to become a psychiatric nurse practitioner. He has since worked for a decade in community mental health treating severe and persistent mental health problems.
Now, Mr. Morris has established his own business and is treating individuals who are looking to improve their mental health and ability to relate better to self and others in an effort to create a more nourishing and satisfying life experience.
When not in the office, you can find Erik exploring the beautiful hiking trails around the Portland area, traveling, practicing yoga and meditation, and of course playing with his adorable puppy, Akiba.
