Introduction to Asong Benanzea-Fontem, PMHNP
My name is Asong. I am a board certified psychiatric and mental health nurse practitioner. I see patients of all ages and with a wide range of mental health challenges. I am inviting you to join me in working together towards a healing path that is meaningful to you and your family. I am passionate about your healthcare needs and goals. I will serve you in a relaxed, nonjudgmental, friendly, inclusive and compassionate fashion. My goal is to provide nothing less than quality and efficient care as soon as possible; communicate in a way that helps your path to wellness. Every patient is unique in their needs. Your care will be individualized and confidential.
My specialties include developmental issues, mood disorders, ADD/ ADHD, behavioral issues, aggression, schizophrenia, psychosis, anxiety, panic, phobias, addictions, depression, eating disorders, loss, grief and bereavement, adjustment issues/ coping, trauma/ PTSD and more. I offer alternative treatments like counseling and psychotherapy. I also provide psychopharmacology as part of my practice, evaluating for and prescribing medication.
I take CIGNA insurance and private pay for now. Others are in process.
