Krissy Gates, DNP, PMHNP-BC, ARNP

Krissy is accepting new clients for medication management.

I am an independently licensed Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC). I have experience in community behavioral health, along with 13 years of nursing experience, including 11 years of Emergency Department experience, most recently at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC), and 13 years of inpatient psychiatric experience, specializing in geriatrics. The last 2½ years of my nursing career at UIHC, I helped to lead and develop the Behavioral Health Services (BHS): Service Without Territories nursing team at UIHC. This team was the focus of my doctoral project which evaluated the outcomes of the team, and initiated proactive measures throughout the inpatient units at UIHC to prevent agitation and patient restraint. I am passionate about helping those with mental health needs and prevention of psychiatric emergencies.

My philosophy of care is a holistic, person centered care with an overall goal to minimize suffering. In addition to medication management, I incorporate Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques into my care management. Your story and perspective is essential in understanding and managing your mental health care needs. I am here to help you be the best you can be! I want to help you lead a happy healthy life.

My areas of specialty include working with ages 5+, LGBTQ+ community, crisis management, substance abuse (Medication Assisted Treatment-pending Data 2000 Waiver for suboxone prescriptive authority), attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, intellectual disabilities, dementia/Alzheimer’s disease, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and many other populations.

Krissy offers in-person and telehealth appointments at our office on Boyson Road in Hiawatha.
