About Alysse "Allie" Craft, ARNP, PMHNP-BC

Guided by a passion for holistic well-being, Allie’s approach is rooted in empathy and a commitment to valuing each member's unique needs. Through close collaboration, she and the member craft personalized plans, acknowledging health as a multifaceted tapestry woven from physical, mental, and emotional dimensions. Moving beyond traditional point-of-care methods, she cultivates an environment where members feel heard, striving for a partnership in the pursuit of lasting well-being.

Having successfully completed the MSN-PMHNP program at Vanderbilt University's School of Nursing, Allie has garnered extensive experience within various settings of the behavioral health service line. Her professional journey encompasses working in outpatient settings across the lifespan, as well as in Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) settings. Furthermore, she has contributed her expertise to inpatient pediatric and adult crisis stabilization, and has provided consultation services in medical units and emergency settings.

Originally from Florida's Nature Coast, she has spent the past decade moving across the country and now resides near Seattle. In her leisure time, she delights in exploring Pacific Northwest trails that lead to waterfalls, engaging in playful banter with her English bulldog and three cats, and frequenting diverse local coffee shops. When not navigating spirited discussions with her four-legged companions, you can catch her orchestrating the next overseas adventure with her husband, who, despite his aversion to long flights, is an integral part of her travel negotiations.

Why I practice: "I embarked on a nursing career, specializing in psychiatry, driven by firsthand encounters with the profound repercussions of limited access to mental health treatment. Witnessing these challenges firsthand ignited a passion to contribute to mental health. After years in the field, my motivation springs from the subtle, yet impactful, moments – the brief connections with members that may seem insignificant but hold tremendous significance. Understanding that these moments can be catalysts for progress keeps me inspired and committed to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those I serve."
