Sommer Perkins is a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Her passion for helping others became highly evident during her career as a registered nurse on a medical-surgical unit, where she gained firsthand insight into how mental health can impact our thoughts, actions, interactions, and physical well-being. She received a Master of Science in Nursing as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse and graduated with honors from Nova Southeastern University in Florida. She has experience working with clients of varied ethnicities and embraces building a solid practitioner-client relationship with people of all ages. She feels her bedside nursing background enables her to provide a warm, empathetic, and comfortable environment for her clients to heal, overcome challenges, and lead meaningful, productive lives.
In her free time, she enjoys attending shows (especially her favorite bands), gardening, spoiling her animals, and getting outside to enjoy nature with her friends.
Healing takes time, and asking for help is a courageous step. – Mariska Hargitay
