PMHNP-BC - FNP-BC
Hawa Fofanah is a Board certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP-BC). Her health career started in cardiac stepdown care. She worked inpatient settings as a registered nurse caring for people with varying medical challenges. She later became a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and practiced for many years in family medicine, before eventually transitioning to Psychiatric mental health. Her passion for mental health grew out of the growing need for mental health providers. In primary care she got to witness how challenging it was for some of her patients to get even an initial psychiatric evaluation. The practice offers a friendly environment that strives to meet the needs of all patients. Her current responsibilities entail initial evaluation of Adolescents and Adults with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, insomnia, schizophrenia, OCD and other issues. In addition, the practice offers Telepsychiatry for the convenience of our patients to attend sessions from the convenience of their homes. In her spare time Hawa loves spending time with her family and traveling.
