Andrea Witham


Andrea Witham, MSN, PMHNP-BC, FNP-C, is a dual board-certified family and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. Andrea has over 20 years of experience in healthcare. She worked as a nurse for over 14 years and has spent the last five years working as a nurse practitioner in primary care. Most recently she completed a post graduate degree program for the mental health nurse practitioner certification. Her previous experience includes working in emergency services, urgent care, travel nursing, hormone optimization, and as a sexual assault nurse examiner. She has also worked in outpatient mental health clinics and residential homes for adults and adolescents with mental illness and neurodevelopmental disorders. She is looking forward to transitioning from the role of primary care provider to specializing in mental health. In her experience, mental health is the bedrock upon which overall health and wellness resides. She can provide trauma-informed care that includes medication management, psychoeducation, and psychotherapy for those 16 years and older. “As a primary care provider, I would spend a lot of visits talking with patients about stress, depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. When COVID-19 hit these visits increased. I wanted to increase my knowledge and skills to better help people with these issues, so I returned to school. My areas of interest include mental health prevention, lifestyle medicine, and providing care for our caregivers including parents, teachers, healthcare workers, and first responders. My goal in this role is to help build a healthier and more resilient community.” -Andrea
