Larissa Birndorf, PMHNP-BC
Welcome and thank you for making the decision to explore your emotional health and wellness! I am a board certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP-BC). This means I completed advanced nursing education and medical training to provide compassionate psychiatric services through brief therapeutic interventions and the prescription of psychiatric medications. My practice approach is person-centered as I am dedicated to listening with an empathetic ear and supporting you in achieving the quality of life you desire.
My initial training was at the University of California, Los Angeles where I completed a graduate degree in the field of social work. While working with people in this capacity, I noticed psychiatric medications were often a valuable part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Therefore, I went on to complete specialized training at Oregon Health & Science University and received an advanced practice nursing degree - expanding my scope of practice to include the prescription of psychiatric medications. The fundamental principles of the nursing profession echo my core values - the importance of collaborative and holistic care.
I am accepting new clients and currently a preferred provider with BlueCross BlueShield, First Choice, and PacificSource. I am in the process of becoming a preferred provider with Aetna, FamilyCare, Moda, and Providence health insurance plans. I can see clients out-of-network and on a “cash pay” basis as well.
