Holly Ellis, PMHNP
I am Holly, a board certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. I believe in a collaborative approach to psychiatry where we will work together to discuss evidence based treatment modalities for your mental health concerns. I also believe in a holistic approach and will often discuss lifestyle changes, medications, as well as refer to other therapeutic modalities. I believe in a conservative approach to prescribing medications as well as adhere to the evidence based practices in regard to medication options/management. You always have choices when it comes to your health choices so I try to provide many therapeutic options as well as keep the doses lower but are yet effective for treatment. I also will try to simplify medication regimens to maximize therapeutic benefits on as few agents as possible. I treat children aged 5 and up, adolescents, and adults.
My medical back ground includes being an emergency medical technician in the Colorado Corrections system not only responding to emergencies but also as an office manager for the entire medical unit. I also did limited work as a CNA in the home health arena. I have been in the field of mental health since 2010 as a bachelor’s degree prepared nurse, graduating from the University of Wyoming. I graduated in 2016 from the University of Colorado Anschutz Campus with a Master of Science in Nursing, Psychiatric Mental Health. Since then, I have had extensive experience in treating all ages on both the inpatient and outpatient basis. Some of these opportunities include inpatient treatment of adults, geriatrics, and adolescents as well as running both intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization programs for children (which was a start up program), adolescents (with tracks for both mental health and substance abuse treatment), and adults.
