Seth A. Eappen, MD

Board Certified Adult, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist

Founder & Executive Director

“I am asked to lift patients from ‘rock bottom’ to their best selves, and my only tools are my words and a prescription pad. Practicing psychiatry is the most rewarding, fascinating and intellectually stimulating pursuit in existence.”

Kristen Stromski, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC

Advanced Practice Nurse

“I know that many people feel stigmatized while getting help and I like to remind my clients that they can be whatever they want to be or go wherever they want to go in life, regardless of whether they have a mental illness or not. I hope people know that getting the help that they need is not shameful, it is brave and courageous!”

Carly Koranda, DNP, APN, CPNP-PC, PMHS

Pediatric Primary Care Mental Health Specialist

“I have always had a strong desire to work with children and adolescents from a young age. While working as a primary care pediatric nurse practitioner, it became clear to me that there was a need to serve children, adolescents, and their families who have slipped through the mental and behavioral health care cracks. Simply put, I want to help transform children, adolescents, and their families who struggle with mental and behavioral health issues from invisible to distinguishable, thriving individuals.”
