Ashley Mannell is a psychiatric nurse practitioner, a registered dietitian, and is trained in functional medicine. She opened her private practice-- Richmond Integrative Psychiatric and Nutrition Services- 3 years ago with the mission of offering people an alternative to mental health treatment--one that did not involve just prescribing medications. Her expertise in nutrition, psychiatry, and functional medicine makes her uniquely qualified to help people who are looking for a different approach to managing and resolving depression, anxiety, mood dysregulation, attention deficit disorder, insomnia, fatigue--to name just a few conditions. Ashley has built her practice on the idea that patients need to be educated about how to heal their minds and bodies, that they need to be engaged in their journey to wellness, and that she and her staff are there as facilitators of change--providing support, encouragement, and accountability every step of the way. Both her practice and her approach to mental health care are unique, progressive, and effective.
