Tara Hicks

Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner - Tara Hicks, PMHNP-BC

I am a Board Certified Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. My education began at South University where I obtained my bachelors in nursing. I enjoyed caring for my patients and wanted to teach nursing students proper techniques. I decided to further my career and attended Western Governors University where I obtained my Masters in Nursing Education. I got back into mental health nursing and wanted more, so I attended Walden University and obtained my Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner degree. Understanding and communication are two important skills when treating patients with mental health and helping patients achieve their best overall well-being.



Tara specializes in assessment for the mental health, physical health, and needs of her patients. She provides individualized, personal, and comprehensive care to develop treatment plans for patients, prescribe, and manage their medications and is devoted to improving the quality of life for her patients.

Treatment Approach

My goal is to change the stigma of mental health and help patients to better understand, cope, and manage challenges and obstacles. I offer you many years of mental health experience to help you move forward to improve and facilitate a positive change to a happy, healthy, and more productive life.
