Create Change Adds Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
We are excited to announce the addition of Mindy Milar Moore to our practice in Portland, Oregon. She adds medication management, hypnosis and mindfulness therapy to our work with clients. I have known and worked with Milar since 2008 as a colleague and am privileged to have her joining Create Change.
Milar Moore is a nurse practitioner in psychiatry and mental health. Before becoming a nurse practitioner, she was a caregiver for elderly patients for many years and then worked in neurological research on healthy brain gain and Alzheimer’s at OHSU. Milar worked as the sole psychiatric provider in a rural area, treating patients of all ages and a great variety of mental health concerns.
Milar combines counseling and medications, according to the client’s unique needs. She focuses on building a strong partnership in order to prioritize the client’s goals for therapy. Although medications may be an important ingredient in treatment, prescribing is always in the context of the patient’s values, stressors, behaviors, and insights — all vital parts of effective therapy. She especially enjoys working with elderly and medically complex patients, including dementia and end of life care. Milar also offers house calls on a limited basis.
