Completing the circle of care

Reach your goals with Provident's newest behavioral health resource

Provident's psychiatric services are the latest example of our ongoing effort to offer the best care to our clients and give them the tools they need to live the lives they want.

Clients over age 18 can now access our on-staff psychiatric nurse practitioner as part of their Provident team of professionals. This means they can obtain professional counseling, psychiatric evaluations, and psychiatric medication management within one convenient, streamlined location.

M. Susan Dawson, Ed.D, PMHNP-BC, s a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with more than 45 years of experience providing mental and physical health care.

Her treatment philosophy:

"What I do is really listen to people. I tell them that working with a full team like Provident's is what you do when you want to reach your personal goals. We're able to combine counseling with medication in the best possible way. I think this allows our clients to feel that we have their back and can put them on a path to live their best lives. "
