Hello! I am Cecilia Kasbohm and I am a Family Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I'm passionate about integrating child and adolescent psychiatric care with the entire family in a holistic approach to help families live fuller, happier, and complete lives.


I have been practicing as a registered nurse for over 35 years, in a variety of settings. I am retired military, having served our country in both the US Navy and US Army, and have a passion working with active and former military. I am bilingual, and I am fluent in English, Spanish.


I completed my Master's of Science in Nursing at Eastern Kentucky University where I graduated with honors. I then went on to complete a nurse practitioner residency at MUSC Health Institute of Psychiatry in Charleston, South Carolina. I have been practicing as a psychiatric nurse practitioner for the past 7 years and have experience with both children and adults.


We provide psychiatric evaluations for both children and adults.


During our first meeting, we will determine diagnosis and discuss appropriate treatment options which include but are not limited to initiation of psychiatric medications and psychotherapy. 

For some of our patients, initiation of and continued management of psychiatric medications is a cornerstone of treatment.


We provide evidenced based medication management for your psychiatric needs which includes monitoring of any side effects, adjustment of medications dependent on response, and psychoeducation regarding expected course throughout your treatment.
