Luke Swift, DNP, APN, PMHNP-BC
Medical Director & Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
Have you been feeling unwell? Do you feel like you do not have a voice when it comes to your own mental health and wellness? Have you ever felt like your medications are continually increased or new medications added without any improvement in your symptoms? The humanity we share is more important than the mental illness we may not.
As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I strive to bring focus back to treating you as a whole rather than an isolated disorder. My focus in treatment is to provide a holistically dynamic integration of psychotherapy and medication with the goal of helping you lead a life unhindered by your mental health. The mind and the body are intricately intertwined and effective care that produces long-lasting recovery is best achieved through the harmonious treatment of both. Medications should help you feel like yourself again and relieve your distress, not cause you to feel numb or lose your sense of self. Medication therapy is an art and my desire is to provide quality care through the effective and precise blending of medication and therapy to aid you in achieving lasting recovery.
I received my Masters in Nursing and my Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) from Rush University specializing in Psychiatry and am a board-certified Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with post-doctoral certification in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. I have experience at the inpatient, residential, and outpatient psychiatric levels of care. My passion is working with individuals and groups coping with any and all psychiatric disorders.
As Medical Director at Mind Body Co-op, my goal is to create a nurse-led medical team with practitioners who believe in and practice holistic and integrative care to ensure each and every patient receives the highest quality and patient-centered care possible. Additionally, in this role I strive to establish and lead a revolutionary training program for Nurse Practitioner students and create ripples of change within the flawed conventional medical model that plagues our current healthcare system.
