The MINDEllipse Team
Thank you for taking the time to visit MINDEllipse. My name is Giovanni, a psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner and the founder of MindEllipse.
I started my career as a registered nurse in 2017, and since then, I have worked in several settings in the mental health arena. I wanted to offer more comprehensive and individualized care to each patient, which led me to obtain my psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner degree. While completing my degree, I was trained under knowledgeable physicians, nurse practitioners, and psychotherapists in several hospitals, inpatient and outpatient settings.
Personally, I have had depression and anxiety since I was a young child, along with combined type ADHD. At the time, I never really understood what I was experiencing, so I isolated myself constantly. I kept what I was experiencing silent until I started college, which was when my symptoms were at their worst. I then sought mental healthcare and have been through several trials of medications. Yes, many of them worked, but there was always lingering depression, anxiety, panic, and insomnia that just would not subside. To make a long story short, Ketamine changed my life, along with therapy and the coping mechanisms I've learned along the way. Can I say I am never anxious? Absolutely not. But this is the best I have felt in a long time. I want to provide the same life-saving treatment that I received to others struggling with debilitating depression and anxiety symptoms.
All my clients must know that I don't just work in the mental health field; I am passionate about it. I want to help individuals relieve their burdens and fulfill their full capabilities. I fully understand that each individual is an expert on themselves. I am committed to collaborating with you to find the best treatment approach for you.
