Kristy L. Eagles, CNP is a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. She received her Master of Science in nursing from the MGH Institute of Health Professions, Master of Science in counseling psychology from Northeastern University, and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She offers psychiatric diagnostic evaluations, medication management, and psychotherapy through telemedicine to people located in MA. She primarily sees adults.
Kristy utilizes an integrative approach in her practice, including the use of conventional psychiatric treatments in addition to a variety of holistic therapies depending on a person’s individualized needs and preferences. She believes strongly in determining the root cause of symptomatology and regularly attends to biochemical imbalances, nutritional concerns, and mold toxicity. Such imbalances are known to cause a myriad of psychiatric symptoms that are often treated in conventional ways without targeting the source of the condition. Holistic treatment requires motivation and commitment but can lead to lasting recovery and healing. Kristy completed training through the Walsh Institute on advanced nutrient therapy and biochemical individuality. She is part of an ongoing mentorship and involved in an active listserv with mold experts Dr. Jill Crista and Dr. Neil Nathan.
Kristy provides psychotherapy through the use of cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and meditation. These therapies help to thicken and strengthen the pre-frontal cortex (the part of our brain responsible for rational thought) and reduce the activity of our limbic system (the part of our brain responsible for fight or flight response); thereby retraining our brain and breaking symptom patterns.
Kristy does not prescribe controlled substances, including stimulants and benzodiazepines.
