Monica Leigh, PNP
Greetings! My name is Monica Leigh (she/her), Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner.
I have practiced nursing for 25 years and 10 as a Nurse Practitioner. I am board certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners in Primary Care and the American Nurses Credentialing Center in Psychiatric and Mental Health for children, adolescents and adults.
I specialize in the treatment of depression, adjustment and mood disorders, PTSD, and anxiety problems. I practice using the bio-psychosocial model of psychiatric disorders and apply elements of the cognitive behavioral approach during medication management visits.
I have lived in the Austin area for 20 years and enjoy traveling, painting, and spending time with my daughter.
I chose to go into psychiatry when I noticed the lack of access to quality mental health services, particularly in undeserved populations. I am so excited to be a part of this team offering services to the LGBTQIA+ community.
It is my passion and brings me joy to be a part of each of my patients’ paths to their happiest and best self.
