Rosilyn Ford

I received my Bachelor and Master Degrees in Nursing from the MGH Institute of Health Professions. Prior to my education in nursing, I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Biology from Wesleyan University, and a Master in Business Administration from Boston University. As a board certified lifespan psychiatric nurse practitioner, I work with adults, teenagers (age 16-19), and elders who suffer from: depression, bipolar disorder, psychotic disorders, anxiety, ADHD, addiction, and trauma. I enjoy working with diverse and multicultural populations, including women, veterans, LGBTQ, and others. I strive to empower patients to achieve their optimal health both mentally and physically, with a multidimensional, holistic approach that incorporates psychoeducation, psychopharmacology and psychotherapy.
