A little about Heather Wise
Heather Wise is a dual certified Advanced Practice Nurse (APN), specializing in mental health and family practice. After working for 12 years in emergency medicine she obtained her master’s degree in 2018 as a Family Practice Nurse Practitioner from Chamberlain University and was board certified later that same year. With her experience in family practice, she quickly realized the unmet and growing need for mental health services. She was inspired to pursue formal psychiatric education via the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) post masters certificate program from Wilmington University and was subsequently board certified in this specialty.
Heather prioritizes care that is holistic and individualized. She understands that for people to optimize their physical health, they must start with their mental health. Her treatment approach aims to combine elements of psychotherapy with pharmacological (medication) treatment as indicated. This customized approach views the person as an individual with specific needs, and not just as their diagnosis. Her patients often describe her as relatable and down to earth. She is passionate about helping people become their best version of themselves, to help them achieve their goals, and to attain balance in their lives.
