Our Pennsylvania Team

Jessica Lee, CRNP, PMHNP-BC, CARN-AP

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Remission. Recovery. Renewal. How many times have you worked to digest other’s definitions of those concepts? Trying, exhaustingly, to adapt and amend yourself into that predefined role?

I am interested in your definition and what those words look like in your world. My philosophy is a commitment to a distinctively personal approach to your health and wellness. My approach is based in warmth, genuineness, honesty and humor. I believe the integration of psychopharmacology through interdisciplinary methods is required to transcend the roadblocks associated in recovery and remission. This is how we will discover your pathways toward renewal.

My clinical experience is in substance related challenges and psychopharmacology for psychiatric disorders. I have worked with many individuals through issues related to anxiety, mood disorders, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress, obsessive and compulsive disorders, pregnancy, postpartum, menopausal transition, gender and multiethnic affirming care. I believe medication assisted treatment has space in the definition of recovery.

Malika Abdurakhmanova, DNP, CRNP, PMHNP-BC

Doctor of Nursing Practice, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Every individual is striving to develop or maintain a healthy psychological and social well-being in everyday life. I believe that mental health is an important component of a person’s overall health as all elements of the body and environmental factors are interconnected with each other. I also strongly believe that the success to mental health recovery begins when all individual’s aspects are addressed as a wholeness.

As a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, I am successfully prepared to provide holistic, patient-centered care for clients needing mental health services and treatments. Through utilization of evidence-based practices, I continuously make efforts to achieve higher levels of clients’ mental wellbeing. Through collaboration with other healthcare providers, continuous client’s care is coordinated in order to facilitate the successful recovery. Utilizing the integrated approaches to healing and wellness, the holistic healing is achieved when mind, body, and spirit are addressed as a single unit, which further guides me to determine the most appropriate treatment strategy.

I am trained to work with all age groups, genders, and cultures, and my focus is on providing a safe therapeutic care by meeting individual needs of each client. I am experienced in providing care to clients suffering from many psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, including bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety, trauma, substance use disorders, as well as various childhood psychiatric disorders.  I am also a certified Russian Medical Interpreter. 

Leigh Myers, CRNP, PMHNP-BC

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

In a world where everything is a trend, I take pride in practicing individualized patient centered care. I like to understand your goals and work as a team to reach those goals. We will work together to optimize your health and wellness. I am passionate about people being true to themselves and exploring exactly what that means to them. I believe in life, we all can overcome adversity and build resiliency in our mental health.

You are more than your diagnoses. As a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, my goal is to be one part of a multi-disciplinary team. I will provide insight into the use of medications and how they can aid you in reaching your life goals. I also provide supportive psychotherapy with medication to ensure you are being heard and your goals are being met. Your journey will be met with honesty, warmth, multidisciplinary collaboration, supportive therapy, and health education.

Most of my experience has been with substance use and co-occurring disorders.  My specialties include major depression, ADHD, anxiety, mood disorders, substance abuse, OCD, psychotic disorders, and PTSD.

I am often humbled by the strength of the human spirit and the capacity of personal growth through healing.

Tulsi Majchrzak, CRNP, PMHNP-BC

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Care and attention to one’s mental health is as important as their physical health. Many strive to achieve mental wellness to better their quality of life but are missing the essential tools needed to guide them to wellness they desire.

My mission is to help individuals who are struggling to achieve their goals in searching for a meaningful, holistic life. Through the use of psychotherapy and psychopharmacology, I believe it is possible to achieve overall wellness. It is essential in my practice to provide a safe space where one can feel open to sharing their true, holistic self without fear of judgment or being misunderstood. Good listening and authenticity throughout our journey together are the keys to success in achieving the goals set to be your best self! 

My background and area of clinical experience in psychiatry includes caring for individuals suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use disorders, OCD, and perceptual disturbances. I believe in the use of psychopharmacology, as well as psychotherapy to provide optimal, holistic care to attain the best outcomes. Together, I believe it is possible to attain mental health wellness by building a relationship based on trust, care, and compassion.

Everyone faces challenging and stressful times in their lives that make them feel stuck and hard to navigate life. I believe we all have strength and resilience to grow and live a more fulfilling life.

I am passionate about helping clients that suffer from trauma, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, life transitions issues, self-esteem, relationship issues, low self-esteem, and women’s issues (Infertility, PCOS, Postpartum). My approach to treatment is guided by strength-based perspective.

Kiley Librich, LSW

Licensed Social Worker

Choosing to enter into therapy can be a very hard choice.  I acknowledge that many of the clients I see are feeling as though they don’t know how to move forward and are frustrated with how life is going.  I firmly believe that recognizing the need for help is a huge first step.  My aim is to meet clients exactly where they are and walk with them as they work to better understand themselves, their past and how to move forward successfully.  The relationship in therapy is most important, as my desire is to create an environment where clients not only can feel comfortable opening up, but also feel safe to do so.  I value each individual, what they bring into session and their want to have hope in tomorrow.
