Patricia Didier holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Austin Peay State University and a Master of Science in Nursing – Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner – from Georgia College and State University. She is certified as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner by the ANCC. Didier is currently pursuing a PhD in Nursing from Georgia State University.

She is well versed in CBT, mindfulness, and problem solving therapy.

Didier first became an LPN at the age of 19 and progressed to ADN, BSN, and MSN. After working as an RN with geriatric clients with Alzheimer’s, she became more interested in diseases that plagued the mind. This started her on her journey into psychiatry. She worked as an RN in psychiatry for six years before becoming a nurse practitioner in the field.

Didier grew up between North Carolina, Brooklyn, New York, and Fresno, California. She lived with different family members before becoming an emancipated minor at 14. She obtained a GED and worked to put herself through college. Being exposed to various cultural groups and social backgrounds gave her working knowledge of social issues long before her formal education. This experience is what drove her to a career in healthcare.

The clients she serves in this field have specialized needs that require empathy and understanding of the biological and psychosocial aspects of their diagnoses. For Didier, it is rewarding to see the positive outcomes in each client’s life when their symptoms are properly treated.

She will always match her clients’ efforts in reaching their healthcare goals. It isn’t about her, it is about them and getting them to what they consider to be their state of wellness. Her treatment plan is a collaborative approach, and she is always there for support.

When she is not working, she enjoys road trips, cruising, antiquing, writing poetry, and going to museums.
