Sherri Kroll

PMHNP

Life is not often filled with puppies, rainbows, and unicorns but can result in trauma, stress, and the unexpected. I know you are not looking for a provider because things are going well in your life and that is my purpose for being here. I became a nurse because I wanted to help others and give back to the world; and then, became a nurse practitioner because I felt there was more I could do to help ease suffering.

As a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) at David S. Deuser & Associates, I am able to provide initial assessments, diagnoses, and medication management for mental health issues. I do not provide traditional psychotherapy, but I will incorporate brief psychotherapy into scheduled appointments. I am also a certified Family Nurse Practitioner, and while I do not provide routine medical care, I am able to provide more holistic care as I am able to give consideration to your medical issues.

To help you with your goal of health and healing, I will use over 20 years of experience to assist you with your goals knowing that every person is a unique individual that deserves time and respect to be heard. I did not begin my journey as a health care provider to work in mental health, but once I did, I found my professional passion.

I am one of 5 nurse practitioners in GA who are certified as addictions specialists from the International Nurses Society on Addictions and am a trained EMDR provider for trauma. Additionally, I teach in the PMHNP program at Georgia Southern and have extensive experience in the fields of crisis stabilization, intellectual developmental disability diagnosed adults, learning disabilities, and gifted individuals.

When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our almost-grown children, and our very needy dogs. I enjoy traveling to visit national parks, paper crafting, washi tape, gardening, NASA, photography, making lists just to cross things off, and reading non-fiction.
