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). 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 in 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 as well as neuro-inflammation.
Detoxification Pathways: Metals, Molds, Environmental exposures, Methylation Issues
Trauma: I am a certified EMDR practitioner have 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.
I am QMP (Qualified Medical Provider) in the state of Utah and licenced to prescribe medical marijuana for those who meet diagnostic criteria for PTSD and Autism Spectrum Disorders. Treatment includes an initial evaluation, a three month follow up, then follow up every six months on and on going basis.
I am currently enrolled in a Psychedelic Assisted Therapy Training program and plan to offer Psychedelic Assisted Therapy sessions with Ketamine, MDMA, and Psilocybin (once legalized) by June 2022
