About Kelly Crenshaw, NP-C

Ms. Crenshaw’s main objective is for patients to be the best they can be, living a freer, more content life. Personally, Kelly has had a grandmother who suffered with dementia, a close friend diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder and many other friends and family members who suffer with depression and anxiety. As a witness to the effects of these disorders on her loved ones’ lives, she has committed herself to the fascinating and rewarding study of the human mind in order to make a positive difference in the lives of her patients and their loved ones. She wants to decrease the burden of symptoms and empower patients to recover; Kelly is most passionate about working to reduce the stigma around receiving mindcare and to help people overcome that stigma to seek the help they need. As a provider, she gives compassionate, holistic care and collaborates with her patients, encouraging them to be involved in decisions about their treatment.
