Thank you for taking the time to visit Safe Haven Health. My name is Giovanni Pierre, a psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner and the founder of Safe Haven Health. I started Safe Haven Health in 2021, a virtual mental health clinic to destigmatize mental health conditions and help individuals reach their full potential.
I started my career as a registered nurse in 2017, and since then, I have worked in several settings in the mental health area. I wanted to offer more comprehensive and individualized care to each patient, which led to obtaining my psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner degree. While completing my degree, I was trained under knowledgeable physicians, nurse practitioners, and psychotherapists in several hospitals, and inpatient and outpatient settings.
Personally, I have had depression and anxiety since I was a young child. At the time, I never really understood what I was going through. I kept what I was experiencing silent until I started college, when my symptoms worsened. I then sought mental healthcare and have been through several traditional and alternative treatments. Yes, many of them have worked, but I still experienced lingering depression, anxiety, panic, and insomnia that just would not subside.
Ketamine drastically transformed my mental health for the best, and in a matter of a few weeks, I started to experience life differently. It opened my eyes to a new world. Can I say I am never anxious now? No. But this is the best I have felt in a long time. I want to provide the same life-saving treatment and more to others struggling with debilitating depression, anxiety, and substance abuse conditions.
All my clients know that I don’t just work in the mental health field; I am passionate about it. I want to help individuals relieve their burdens and fulfill their full capabilities. I fully understand that each individual is an expert on themselves. I am committed to collaborating with you to find the best treatment approach for you.
