Psychiatry in Burlingame, California Aura Mena, NP

Aura Mena, NP

Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner I worked for 12 years as an inpatient nurse at a local hospital, 8 of which were as an inpatient psychiatric nurse working with the adult population. I’ve spent the last 6 years working as a Community Mental Health Nurse with underserved communities in the county that suffer from severe mental illnesses. During that time, I also completed the Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner Program at UCSF. My area of expertise are adults suffering from depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorders. From the start of my career, I realized that I have the responsibility to meet my clients where they are. My job is to meet my clients with compassion, empathy and a great sense of respect at their most vulnerable times. My approach is patient care is collaborative, in partnership with my clients and colleagues. I am interested in learning from and understanding my clients, as they know themselves and their needs best, and together we can establish the best treatment options to help them achieve their treatment goals. I speak English and Spanish.
