Hi, and welcome to Aligned Psychiatry. I'm Sarah Schenk, a board certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner passionate about integrating traditional psychiatric treatment with complementary and holistic approaches.
As an integrative psychiatric nurse practitioner, I help young professionals and adults age 18-65 who struggle with perfectionism, burnout, low self-worth, and a constant feeling of "tired but wired" achieve a more balanced and joyful life by offering a holistic approach that includes talk therapy, sleep optimization, nutrition recommendations, exercise and lifestyle coaching, mindfulness practices, and medication and supplement management. I specialize in treating anxiety disorders, depression, insomnia, and PTSD.
I was drawn to integrative care because it prioritizes optimal wellness rather than just the absence of disease. I believe in the power of the body to heal itself when given the right support. By embracing a holistic approach, I aim to understand your goals and work with you toward optimizing your health, both mentally and physically. It means prevention of chronic conditions rather than just medicating symptoms. Additionally, I strongly believe in the power of connection between the client and provider, so if we work together, you'll know you have a trusted ally who will walk with you each step of the way.
