Andrea Thompson, APRN, FNP-C, PMHNP-BC, PMH-C

Director of Perinatal Psychiatry

Andrea Thompson, APRN, FNP-C, PMHNP-BC is a nurse practitioner whose background has stemmed in primary care, primarily working with under-served and under-insured populations. After several years in family practice, she completed a post-master’s certification as a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. In early 2019, she started a program the first of its kind in Northern Nevada to integrate mental health services into a women’s health/OBGYN practice where she had a focus on perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMAD) diagnosis and treatment which solidified her passion for perinatal/reproductive psychiatry. She has also completed a perinatal mental health certification through Postpartum Support International to even better serve her clients. As a postpartum depression survivor herself, she has a passion for helping other women throughout their journey to mental wellness. She and her husband moved to the Reno area several years ago from Seattle, WA to settle into a place to raise their family; they have three children. Aside from spending time with her family outdoors, Andrea is also active in the efforts to improve the sexual health education offered to the youth in our community as well as advocating at the state level to support nurse practitioner autonomy and maternal mental health.
