About Ann Lowe, PMHNP

Ann Lowe is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, and has been a nurse practitioner for over thirty years. Before specializing in mental health, Dr. Lowe worked for years in cardiology and primary care, in several settings, including private practice, the prison system, and Skid Row. She was able to witness firsthand the powerful role emotional well-being can play on illness and pain. This belief is reflected by her doctoral dissertation, which investigated the effect of aromatherapy on the fMRI brain activation patterns on women with IBS. She has an extensive history of working with the geriatric population as well as with patients with severe anxiety, depression, and complex trauma. From her years of experience as a medical and mental health provider, she knows that in order to have authentic healing from the inside out, both the body and the mind need to be treated and addressed on the journey to full health.

Dr. Lowe has a wealth of academic knowledge and diverse experiences that allow her to treat a full spectrum of mental health issues. She holds a BSN in Acute Care from California State University, Los Angeles, and an MSN and Ph.D. from the UCLA School of Nursing. She also holds a Post-Doc from Brandman University as a Pyschiatric Nurse Practitioner.
She is an exceptionally competent and compassionate practitioner. She brings the gifts of seasoned experience, genuine kindness, and astute skill in treatment guidelines.
