Meet the Team at Genuine Healthcare
Genuine Healthcare, PLLC, was established to be more than just a brick and mortar operation.
It was designed to engage in cutting-edge technology, science and holistic based psychiatric medicine and interventions. We had in mind to be a comprehensive one-stop mental health entity that was targeted to provide the latest technology, science and holism, and to bring this to the mental health and wellness population that it would service.
Meet Our Staff!
Genuine Healthcare would not be Genuine Healthcare without the support and dedication of our staff. Providing genuine, compassionate, and holistic care is foremost to mental health and wellness. Each one of our staff members exemplifies the special characteristic of genuineness that you expect in your care keeping.
Meet Eevee, our therapy dog in training. Eevee is a Samoyed and is identified as a hypoallergenic breed. Eevee likes keeping our staff company in the office, barking for attention, long walks in the rain, reindeer, cats, and raw hide sticks (the stinkier, the better).
Psychiatric and Family Medicine ARNP
Our provider, Harvey Hall ARNP, trained in healthcare for over 30 years is committed to excellence in psychiatric care, and this is evidenced by the time spent in both the first appointment, as well as subsequent appointments, along with offering a broad array of services. He is committed to taking care of those whom he shares stewardship with, and values each patient in their individual journey towards being their best self.
Harvey worked as an Army Medic in the 1980s; also worked in the following: Independent Medic, Emergency Medical Technician, trained as a Physician Assistant, supervised two Emergency Departments, included the Army’s busiest Emergency Department, Behavioral Case Manager for those with PTSD and depression, Interventional Pain Management Practitioner, Veteran Compensation and Pension Examiner for VA Contractor, and extensive work as a solo provider in inpatient psychiatry for seriously mentally ill patients.
April - RN, MSN, ARNP, P-MHNP-BC
Psych Nurse Practitioner
At the age of 15, I began my career in healthcare in a nursing home, as an aid. I fell in love with caring for others, and went on to graduate from Sinclair Community College, in 1999 with my Associate of Science in Nursing. My interest in the science and art of healing grew and I advanced my education to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Regis University in 2015 (summa cum laude), then a Master of Science in Nursing (with honors) as a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner in 2022.
Throughout my 23 years as a registered nurse, I have worked in various settings; corrections, inpatient psychiatry, intensive care, and outpatient clinics. I am grateful to be a member of the Genuine Healthcare Group Practice, because this team of professionals is dedicated to pursuing holistic psychiatric health using innovative, validated, evidence-based modalities. It is my professional covenant to serve those seeking health and healing through psychiatry.
I am a currently, or a former member of the following professional organizations; Alpha Sigma Nu, Sigma Theta Tau, The Washington Nurses Association, The American Nurse Practitioner Association, and The American Nurses Association. I am committed to professionalism and ongoing education.
The greatest lesson that I have received in my role as a healthcare professional is that most human suffering is rooted in emotional and cognitive difficulty. These challenges often stem from pain or trauma, typically early in our development. The mind is an organ like any other in the body; as such, it needs care and healing from time to time! Often, the most impactful modality one can offer is that of human empathy and kindness. My fervent hope is to assist those who suffer to attain strength, resiliency, and inner peace.
