Dr Kim Johnsnon

Kim Johnson, MSN, APRN, PMHNP-BC

Here is Kim Johnson in her own words:

“I am a Board Certified Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner since 2011, with both my graduate and undergraduate backgrounds coming from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN. I initially started my nursing career in the medical field and quickly learned that mental health was my passion. I have been working in behavioral health for over a decade now and my experience is with clients across the age spectrum. My client care centers around a collaborative and individualized treatment model. I believe in fostering growth through a comprehensive treatment approach that is guided by your needs and strengths. When I am not in the clinic, I enjoy spending time in the outdoors of Northern Minnesota.”

Dr. Melissa Maki, DNP, APRN, PMHNP-BC

Here is Melissa Maki in her own words:

“I have earned a Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree from the College of St. Scholastica and have been a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner since 2003. Prior to that, I have had 9 years of experience working as a RN. I had the opportunity to work at Bridge House (crisis mental health facility). It was there that I grew fascinated with psychiatry and decided to pursue graduate school and ultimately, doctoral education. I believe in treating my patients the way I would want my own family to be treated. Through this lens, I am able to empathize and understand my patients. Together we define individual treatment goals. The patient’s goals along with utilizing evidence based practice helps me to determine the best treatment for my patients. My patients’ treatment plans often include more than just prescription medications. They may include psychotherapy and a variety of other treatment options to help them reach their goals.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and our dog. I like to travel but I also like to stay home and relax.”

Dr. Teresa Reder, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, PMHNP-BC

Here is Teresa Reder in her own words:

“I am a dual certified nurse practitioner. I earned my Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and became a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner in 2018. I returned to the University of Tennessee and obtained my Post Doctorate Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Certification. Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, I worked as a Registered Nurse for 10 years in different areas including case management, Emergency Department, and the Intensive Care Unit. I have spent the last 4 years working on an Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit managing all the acute and chronic medical needs of the patients. This is where I could see firsthand how a patient’s mental and physical health goes hand in hand and how one affects the other. I believe a holistic approach to mental health provides the best overall outcomes. I want to help my patients feel empowered to overcome the challenges one may face. I believe in creating an individualized plan of care with evidence-based guidelines blended with clinical experience, personal observation, and a therapeutic relationship with my patients. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, football season, being outdoors, and traveling.”

“I am a Licensed Graduate Social Worker (LGSW) in the state of Minnesota. I earned my bachelor’s of Social Work from the University of Alaska in 2013 and my master’s Degree of Social Work from the University of Arlington Texas in 2016.
My experience is diverse, working with children, adults and families throughout Texas, California and Minnesota. I believe in a holistic approach to therapy, combining both traditional and non-traditional psychotherapuetic treatments to find balance in the physical, mental and spiritual interdependent areas of well-being. I currently work with adolescents and adults in areas of anxiety, depression, trauma, self discovery, couples, family therapy and bereavement. I am trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) which combines the power of eye movements, Gestalt, Psychodynamic Therapy and Guided Imagery to treat many mental health problems such as OCD, Eating Disorders, Generalized Anxiety, Depressive Disorders, PTSD and phobias in as little as one session.
I specialize in holding a supportive and judgment-free space that allows individuals to find healing in their own ability to self reflect and tap into their inner strengths and gifts.
A little bit about me: I am a native Texan, Minnesotan at heart. I enjoy hiking, reading, writing, learning ,kayaking, exploring new places, cooking and sewing. I have recently started quilting as a winter sport. If you are interested, feel free to hop over to my blog to read my latest thoughts on mental health at Allthingshealingwithshiloh.com.”
