Joann Brown is a Board-Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, known for her empathetic and collaborative approach. Growing up in the countryside, Joann developed a deep appreciation for the outdoors and the changing seasons, with fall being her favorite time of year. This love for nature and change is reflected in her approach to mental healthcare, where she sees people's lives as ever-evolving, just like the seasons.

Joann earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Xavier University, followed by a Master's degree from Wright State University. She further specialized by completing a Postgraduate Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner program at Indiana Wesleyan University. Her educational journey has equipped her with a comprehensive understanding of mental health, which she applies in her practice with a focus on growth, healing, and new beginnings.

Her path to mental healthcare was driven by the noticeable lack of proper mental healthcare available to patients. Joann believes that mental health is a journey that should be undertaken together, valuing the voice and experience of each client. She is committed to being a supportive presence, offering both a shoulder to lean on and a source of encouragement and strength.

Joann's practice is characterized by a holistic approach. She understands that mental wellbeing is not just about addressing immediate concerns but also about fostering long-term growth and resilience. Her philosophy is centered around the belief that just like the seasons, people's lives are about change and adaptation, and she is there to guide and support her clients through their personal transformations.

Outside of her professional life, Joann is an avid traveler. She believes that exploring new places and cultures enriches her perspective, both personally and professionally. This passion for travel complements her professional life, where she continuously seeks new approaches and perspectives to support her clients.
