As Arcadia Counseling Center expanded their practice to meet the growing number of referrals in the last 6 years, they also recognized the need for an in-house psychiatric clinician who can prescribe and manage medication. ACC is proud to offer direct referrals to our psychiatric nurse practitioner, Lisa Kubie, in order to provide quality, collaborative, continuity of care.
Lisa Kubie attended New York University where she received a BSN in Nursing. After graduation she worked as a staff nurse in hospital medical settings. Lisa was soon accepted at Yale University’s Family Nurse Practitioner program where she received a Master’s Degree in Nursing. With her MSN, Lisa pursued a career as a Family Nurse Practitioner in medical clinics which focused on providing quality healthcare to underserved populations.
With a growing interest in psychological care and appreciating each patient’s unique story, Lisa decided to become a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner by obtaining her Post-Masters certification as a Board Certified PMHNP from Pace University. Before moving to Arizona, Lisa worked for 12 years at a mental health clinic in New York State providing comprehensive care to a wide range of psychiatric disorders. She was able to incorporate her knowledge and experience in the nursing field, with psychotherapy and psychopharmacology.
Lisa is able to provide the following services:
- Full psychiatric assessments
- Treatment planning
- Therapeutic interventions
- Referral to internal or external appropriate resources/providers
- Collaboration with existing or prior treatment providers
- Writing prescriptions
- Medication management
