As seen on a Sussex Directories Inc site   My name is Chris Hutchings, APMHNP. I am also an ANCC certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, with expertise in treating children, adolescents and adults with anxiety, depressive disorders, bipolar mood disorders and ADHD. I am thrilled to join Creekside Collaborative Therapy. This practice is a good fit for me as I value a holistic and individualized approach to treatment. I have 22 years experience in psychiatric nursing and have been a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner since 2000. I have experience with intensive inpatient, outpatient and day treatment programs. Prior to moving to Colorado in 2006, I enjoyed a private practice providing outpatient psychiatric treatment, psychotherapy, CBT, behavioral interventions and medication management. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults, to provide psychiatric treatment, primarily through medication management and therapy services. I have expertise in helping clients understand how the stress response to the body and brain can affect mental health and teach effective stress management and relaxation skills. I strive to understand each person as an individual and to work collaboratively toward treatment goals. I welcome referrals and look forward to working with you to help meet the needs of our community.
