Brooke A. Finley, PhD, DNP, PMHNP-BC, RN, CARN-AP is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and doctorally-prepared, dual board-certified psychiatric mental health and addiction nurse practitioner. She has a private practice in New York State where she conducts in-person individual and group psychotherapy while providing high-quality virtual mental health care to patients across the United States.
She graduated from the University of Arizona (UA) with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing program with a psychology minor. After graduation, she worked as a board-certified psychiatric mental health registered nurse and supervisor in psychiatric hospitals, helping adults and children. She continued her studies at UA, earning a Master of Science in Nursing (psychiatric mental health across the lifespan focus) and later two doctorates, a Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing (Ph.D.) and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), studying how therapeutic relationships are created and maintained in virtual care.
Early in her career, she realized that short-term psychotherapies and medication management usually do not help people fundamentally change, preventing a life-giving understanding of oneself. In response, she practices what she considers the best treatment for most people, which is psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Respectively, she completed three psychoanalytic training programs and continues training with world-renowned psychoanalysts and at the Contemporary Freudian Society in New York City.
Brooke has worked with for many different types of people from all walks of life, but has significant experience working with executives, healthcare professionals, first responders, artists, and college students. She specializes in helping with relationship, professional, personality, and mood issues.
She resides in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, where she enjoys cooking, reading, being in nature, gardening, kayaking, music, art, and caring for animals on a solar-powered woodland permaculture homestead.
