About Lori Eaton, APRN, PMHNP-BC

Lori Eaton treats patients starting from 16 years old.

I am a Board Certified - Adult Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), I offer assessment, diagnosis, medication management and supportive counseling. I am able to provide clients with psychotherapy and medication management, either together or as a stand alone service. I treat anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse, depression, bipolar disorder, as well as other conditions. I have extensive history working with dual diagnosis (substance abuse with other mental health issues). I have a long history of working in detox centers, and residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. I have treated patients who are opiate addicts, alcoholics, as well as others who suffer with other substances of abuse. I have worked in most areas of mental health, such as: psychiatric emergency services, community mental health clinics, forensics, psychiatric hospitals, and have had my own private practice. I have worked with diverse populations which include varied ethnicities, religions, social class, and the LGBTQ community. I am comfortable serving all walks of life.
My approach is one of validation and compassion. I believe the best way to achieve and sustain remission is to work together as a team. We will identify the problem together and establish realistic treatment goals. A full psychiatric evaluation will be completed to accurately diagnosis and discuss the best treatment options. I may incorporate and encourage lifestyle changes and non-pharmacological alternatives, including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, the three principles, 12 step, and others.
I am dedicated to treating the whole person. Understanding, compassion and non-judgement are my core values as a practitioner.
