Patricia Conolly, PMHNP-BC – Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

I am so excited to join the Atracare team and begin caring for and supporting individuals in this wonderful community. 

Originally from the suburbs of Philadelphia, I attended Pennsylvania State University, where I obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. I have worked in various areas of nursing, but found my passion in the mental health field, which lead me to pursue a Master of Science Degree in Nursing as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. 

As a nurse practitioner, I believe in a holistic approach for my patients. I aim to provide individualized care by taking into account all aspects of my patients’ lives. I offer a compassionate and non-judgmental environment, as I work alongside individuals in their journey to improved mental health. I am determined to support people in getting where they want to be in life by utilizing a solution-focused approach to treatment, which emphasizes setting measurable goals.

In my free time, I prioritize spending time with my family and my adorable dog Remi. We love relaxing on the Delaware and New Jersey beaches!
