A 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, supplements and behavioral plans, engage in therapy and provide psychoeducation for clients with psychiatric disorders, medical conditions 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 is 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 or Leaky Gut from chronic GI inflammation from food sensitivities resulting in neuroinflammation, imbalances in the microbiome resulting in malabsorption and nutritional deficiencies.
Detoxification Pathways: Methylation issues and disruption of hormonal communication from molds, metals and other environmental exposures.
I also work with clients to understand how various traumas create and inform our core beliefs about ourselves and the world and thus drives our patterns of perceiving and reacting. I am a certified EMDR practitioner and utilize this therapy for those dealing with PTSD as well as many other mental health conditions rooted in core beliefs and emotional patterns of dysregulation.
