A Holistic Approach to Health, Wellness and Happiness
My name is Regan Haight and I am a Utah-based Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) with a specialty as a board certified Family Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP). I want to help you along your path to health, wellness and happiness and can assist you in many ways. I am experienced in treating a wide range of mental health conditions of adults, adolescents and children, such as depression, mood disorders, anxiety, trauma and eating disorders. PMNHPs diagnose mental illness, order diagnostic tests, prescribe medications, supplements and behavioral plans, engage in therapy and provide psychoeducation for clients with psychiatric disorders, medical mental conditions and mental health issues arising from environmental and relationship stress.
Taking a Holistic Approach
I whole-heatedly believe that a holistic approach to mental health achieves better and more long-lasting results. I have completed a year long Integrative Psychiatry Fellowship and seek to align individuals and their healthcare for optimal health and healing across the life span. My approach is person-centered, prevention-oriented, evidence based and makes use of biomedical therapies, complementary therapies and traditional healing modalities that offers the best of both worlds, resulting in better outcomes, symptom relief and function.
A comprehensive assessment of presenting symptoms, mental health history, medical and family history, interpersonal relationships and early childhood experiences, lifestyle and beliefs is completed, then a treatment plan is created together with a focus on the Body, Mind and Soul. I use a wide range of diagnostic tools to assist in this process, such as baseline labs to evaluate overall health, Genetic Testing, organic acid testing (OAT), stool testing, food allergy and hormone testing to identify possible root causes of symptoms which may include:
The Gut-Brain Connection: Dysbiosis or Leaky Gut, infections and imbalances in microbiome resulting in malabsorption and nutritional deficiencies.
Detoxification Pathways: Metals, Molds, Environmental exposures, Methylation
Metabolic Regulation: Thyroid, Adrenal and Sex Hormones, Metabolic syndrome, exercise and fitness.
Brain Optimization: TBI, MCI, Mitochondria and Neurodegenerative disorders
Immune Modulation: Infections, Autoimmune Disorders, Inflammation and Allergies
Trauma: Complex, Single Event, Dissociation, Emotional Dysregulation
Beliefs: Polarized Thoughts, Disempowerment, Apathy
Spirituality: Disconnection, Existential Despair, Transpersonal Crisis
