Alexa Voss, ARNP, PMHNP
Psychiatrist Nurse Practitioner
I have extensive experience treating multiple forms of depression including Medication Resistant Depression, Post Partum Depression, Major Depression, Situational Depression, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, and Persistent Depressive Disorder. I am passionate about helping patients overcome their depressive state and continue on as their medication management provider if needed. Other areas of expertise include treating medically stable eating disorders, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder.
I worked as a Registered Nurse at the University of Iowa in inpatient psychiatry with a focus on eating and mood disorders, and outpatient with Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). I completed my graduate degree at Allen College in Waterloo, IA and am board certified with the American Nurses Credentialing Center. My past experience with ECT has ignited a passion for brain stimulation treatments.
My treatment philosophy includes helping patients address mental illness in order to achieve their goals and pursue their passions! Her practice is heavily influenced by her time working as a nurse; she firmly believes in holistic care and treating the patient as a whole person rather than a diagnosis.
I adore animals and enjoys spending time with my husband, two dogs, two cats and reptiles. In my free time I enjoy fiber arts such as knitting and crocheting, reading, yoga, and playing the harp.
