“One Of The Secrets In Life Is To Make Stepping Stones Out Of Stumbling Blocks.” – Jack Penn
Theresa Wilson is a Tennessee licensed board-certified Family Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) with prescriptive authority. Theresa graduated with distinction and honors from Tennessee State University and Vanderbilt University, respectively. She specializes in a wide range of psychiatric services provided to patients across the life span. Areas of focus include mood disorders, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, behavioral issues, ADHD/ADD, thoughts disorders, addictions, abuse and trauma.
Clinical services provided to children, adolescents, and adults include psychiatric diagnostic evaluations, medication management, and supportive therapy. Marriage, family, and group support services are also available.
Theresa believes that everyone is unique and that no person should be defined by his/her diagnosis. She delivers a treatment plan based on the individual and tailors it to fit the specific needs and treatment goals of each patient.
Theresa aims to provide comprehensive psychiatric care that is also affordable. Stepping Stones Psychiatric Services was birthed, in part, out of recognition that all people deserve access to affordable quality care irrespective of their socioeconomic status and more importantly all people deserve to be treated with compassion and respect regardless of their circumstance.
At Stepping Stones Psychiatric Services, medication management is one of many tools utilized to achieve overall wellness. Theresa aspires to help each individual utilizing holistic therapy in conjunction with medication intervention. Theresa also realizes that for some, spirituality is a very important part of the treatment process and she is open to incorporating faith-based practices into the treatment plan.
“Certainly, I want people to have the medication they need to alleviate symptoms, but at the same time, I want them to develop awareness and insight to do the work themselves. I want to help people function in society—and that takes far more than just medication.”
Theresa provides a safe, welcoming, and judgment-free environment. She wants patients to feel as comfortable as possible throughout the entire process.
“Faith, family, and serving others have always been foundationally who I am.”
At Stepping Stones Psychiatric Services, it is our pleasure to take the journey to wellness with you!
