A Comprehensive and Holistic Approach to
Mental Health and Wellness
My name is Regan Haight. I am an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) with a specialty as a Board Certified Family Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP). PMNHPs diagnose mental illness, order diagnostic tests, prescribe medications and supplements, develop behavioral plans, engage in therapy and provide psychoeducation for clients with psychiatric disorders and mental health issues arising from environmental and interpersonal or relationship stress. I want to help you along your path to optimal mental health health and wellness and happiness and can assist you in many ways.
I have completed an 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, holistic, evidence based, and makes use of integrative testing and therapies, complementary therapies, conventional medication when indicated, and the therapeutic relationship, to invoke the power of inner healing resulting in symptom relief, improved outcomes and functionality, and a more enduring quality of life.
First, a comprehensive, diagnostics assessment of presenting symptoms, mental health history, medical and family history, interpersonal relationships and early childhood experiences, lifestyle habits and spiritual is completed. Together, a treatment plan will be created with a focus on the Body, Mind, and Soul.
I use a wide range of diagnostic tools to assist in this process, such as serum testing to assess overall health, nutritional reserves and organ function, genetic testing, organic acid testing (OAT), stool testing, food sensitivity and hormone testing to identify possible root causes of symptoms which may include:
The Gut-Brain Connection: Dysbiosis and Intestinal Permeability ("Leaky Gut") and chronic GI inflammation from food sensitivities results in neuroinflammation, imbalances in the microbiome, and malabsorption and nutritional deficiencies. This is a primary cause for the neurotransmitter imbalances that result mental health disorders and symptoms of anxiety, brain fog, low energy, sleep disorders and even pain and migraine syndromes.
Detoxification Pathways: Methylation issues and disruption of hormonal communication from molds, metals and other environmental exposures.
Without data from testing, individualized treatments targeted and root causes of symptoms becomes a guessing game. Testing saves time and improves long-term outcomes.
