Jennifer M. Thomas, APRN, PMHNP-BC

Jennifer M. Thomas is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner in Tennessee who has been practicing since 2022. Jennifer believes her role as an PMHNP is to use her 22 years of nursing experience along with her higher education to assess patients for various mental health disorders and implement medications to help manage their symptoms. She feels it is important as a provider to make sure we have a great provider-client relationship that is based on trust, compassion, empathy, and no judgement regarding their mental health issues. Jennifer feels it is her responsibility to her patients to makes sure they completely understand why they are on their medication, what side effects could occur, what to do if they do occur, and when they need to notify the provider for a concern. Jennifer believes medication is a choice and it is her job to provide you the options of medications that are available to treat your mental health issues along with providing you the risks and benefits of each of them. She feels together you will make a shared decision of what will be the best option for you. Jennifer believes each and every one of her patients are like pieces to a puzzle and no matter how scrambled life may be, with the right guidance, medications, and therapy resources, together you can strive for mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical wholeness. Jennifer is a mother of three, ages 22, 15, and 11 years old. She has been married to her husband for 18 years, who is her soul mate and best friend. She loves going to church, spending time with her family, traveling, watching her children play sports, and trying new restaurants.
