Kristy Thompson is a licensed nurse practitioner with 14 years of professional experience who believes in empowering patients through compassionate and comprehensive care. Her specialties include family medicine, mental health, and weight loss. She earned her credentials as a certified family nurse practitioner and mental health nurse practitioner from the prestigious Maryville University. Their education program and training equipped her with the skills to excel professionally.
Kristy Thompson has worked in diverse healthcare settings, including inpatient hospitalist care, weight loss clinics, diabetes management, primary care, urgent care, workers’ compensation, community care, and mental health facilities. These experiences allow her to provide exceptional care across various patient needs.
Throughout her career, she observed how many patients ignore the body-mind connection, which can lead to mental health challenges. Oftentimes, stress can be an underlying cause of weight gain, and vice versa. It encouraged her to bridge the gap by focusing on psychotherapy and medication management. Her patients receive practical guidance and individualized support to promote health and wellness.
While she is qualified to prescribe medications as a mental health nurse practitioner, she firmly believes that psychotherapy should be the first line of treatment for mental health disorders. With compassionate advice and evidence-based psychotherapy, patients can develop coping strategies to counter everyday stressors. She uses an empathetic approach to foster a collaborative patient-provider relationship to help individuals overcome limiting beliefs, adopt an active lifestyle, and live mindfully.
Whether patients seek mental health support, weight loss advice, or comprehensive primary care, she aims to create a safe, non-judgmental space for them to voice their concerns. She learns about patient routines and health goals during consultations to develop tailored treatment plans.
Kristy Thompson’s commitment to delivering exemplary care extends beyond state lines. As a licensed nurse practitioner in South Carolina, Florida, Oregon, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Connecticut, Virginia, Idaho, and Nevada, she takes pride in serving patients across regions, ensuring everyone receives the highest quality care.
