Are you feeling alone and misunderstood?
Do you ever feel like your mind is betraying you?
Do you need a caring, interactive mental health practitioner to help you manage your mental care?
Hello! I’m Satu Woodland, owner and clinical director of Boise Mental Health.
Although I do marriage counseling and family therapy as an add-on service in my practice, I specialize in the treatment of mental health issues: depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, ADHD, schizophrenia, bipolar illness, and eating disorders, and others which often require medication consultation and management. (You can click here for a full list of specialties I treat.) I have been working with patients on these issues for more than 25 years.
What makes me different from other mental health specialists in Boise is my specialized training. As a Psychiatric Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist (PMHCNS), I am a registered nurse with a Masters degree from UCSF. I offer help for all levels of treatment for mental health conditions, from psychiatric evaluations and counseling to prescribing medications where applicable.
My main focus is integrative treatment, meaning treating the mind and body together. If you are tired of the rushed, medication-centric services of most psychiatrists, I can offer you something better and more lasting.
I love working with people of different cultures and will respect and honor your religious/spiritual practices. I welcome people of all faiths and philosophies.
It takes a lot of courage to seek out mental health services and I want to congratulate you on taking this first step! The next steps may not be easy, but I am confident I can help you find the peace, contentment and joy that I believe all people have the capacity to feel.
