Psychiatry in Walnut Creek, California Jeryl Girton, NP

Jeryl Girton, NP

I am a dual ANCC Board Certified Family and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I have been working in the mental health field since 1990 in various roles. I have had the opportunity to utilize my Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner skills with various ages and in various settings. I integrate medication management and psychotherapeutic approaches when indicated. My previous mental health clinical experiences include acute and long-term psychiatric facilities, as well as practicing in outpatient psychiatric clinics for children, adolescents and adults. I have worked with and provided treatment for many different types people and their diagnosis such as ADHD, Depression, Schizophrenia, & Bipolar d/o are just to name a few. By utilizing my Family Nurse Practitioner board certification I have also been able to broaden my knowledge base which is a good assest when treating a whole person. I have had additional clinical experiences and provided treatment in medical fields such as infection prevention, pain management & gastroenterology.
My undergraduate work and Registered Nurse Licensure was completed in 1996 at Pacific Union College in Angwin, Ca. Later, I returned to school and in 2007 I obtained a Master’s Degree in Nursing and Licensure in Family Nurse Practitioner from Holy Names University in Oakland, Ca. After using my Family Nurse Practitioner mainly while practicing in the psychiatry field, I decided to return to school one more time. I figured you’re never too old to go back to school, nor to learn. Therefore, after three more years of knowledge gathering, I became dual certified when I obtained my Post Masters Certification in Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing from Washburn University in Topeka KS and then became ANCC board certified in July 2018.
Having a background in nursing, I put a strong emphasis in education and having the patient understand and participate in their own healthcare. Currently, accepting new patients for medication management for ages 8 and older only. In the event the patient is a minor, BOTH parents or legal guardians must consent to participation and treatment.
