Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Kay Patch is a licensed clinical nursing specialist in advanced practice psychiatric/mental health nursing. Kay conducts psychiatric mental health evaluations, provides psychiatric medication management and subsequent education related to symptom relief and medication effectiveness. She also provides psychotherapy for adolescents, adults and families.

Ms. Patch is currently the medical director for a therapeutic boarding school for struggling teenagers where she has also served as the clinical director and now oversees health center nursing services and provides consultation, psychiatric medication management and individual, occasional group and family therapy. Kay has taught undergraduate psychology courses and graduate psychiatric nursing courses at the university level.

Kay’s personal and professional philosophy is rooted in the tenets of the neurobiological processes of interpersonal relationships. A working partnership between client and practitioner is integral toward emotional safety and the therapeutic process and is established as a result of mutually interactive acceptance and positive regard. Evidence based strategies are incorporated into a plan of care designed and co-created within the therapeutic alliance and then integrated into the therapy process.

Eclectic and wholistic in therapeutic style, Kay often uses expressive art modalities to augment her therapy approach consistent with Interpersonal Relations, Attachment and Systems Theories also within a context of nursing theorist Nola Pender’s Health Promotion Framework.

Kay is licensed in NH, and ME.

People will forget what you did,

But people will never forget how you made them feel.
