Maria Pontiero has been a Registered Nurse since 2015. She has worked in different specialties understanding that mental health is a part of every patients journey no matter if it is an elective surgery to a serious illness. She began her journey in mental health May 2020 at Regis University and graduating May 2021 to become a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.
Maria looks forward to working with patients with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and trauma. She believes that patients must be treated as a whole and incorporate a healthy lifestyle involving relationships, sleep, habits, nutrition, exercise, and stress. Other areas to discover are trauma, beliefs, genetics, hormonal balance, and spirituality.
Maria’s passion and future goal is to become certified in Integrative Psychiatry where she will be able to incorporate science-backed complementary and alternative therapies with standard-of-care treatments.
Collaborative care is also a part of the healing journey and she is excited to work with a team that offers many effective therapies, yoga, and mindfulness practices.
