Meet Shakera Snelling, FNP-C, PMHNP-BC



Hey! You’re seeking help because it is needed. That’s huge! Many people don’t seek treatment or therapy but you’re already on this path. Some folks don’t find the path. You’ve got some idea of what you need and are ready for someone to be along with you on this journey. We both know humans succeed in a team not so much when we are alone. First, give yourself credit because it takes a lot of courage to not do things alone and to be willing to open up to someone you do not know. Your courage is where our journey together starts. It would be an honor to be a part of your team in life, for life!

Oh, hi, by the way, I’m Shakera Snelling. I am a dual-certified psychiatric and family nurse practitioner: I diagnose, prescribe, and utilize therapy for mental health conditions and medical conditions. A diagnosis or symptoms helps us to figure out a plan together, but it is NOT who you are.( Yeah, I know you heard that before, but it’s true!).
High blood pressure does not define that person. Borderline personality, antisocial personality, obsessive-compulsive disorder, ADHD, substance use disorder, anxiety disorder, phobias, psychosis, self-harm, suicide attempts, and trauma does not define you either. Please KNOW you’re way more amazing, beautiful, and complex than a label. Let’s get started!

My goals have been to dedicate myself to clients and to see them thrive. Nothing gives me so much joy. I have been a nurse for ten years and a nurse practitioner for six years. I have worked in long-term care caring for older adults, private practice caring for children and adults. Fostering Resilience is my private practice, but I have worked in primary care at Community Medical Centers, CHE Behavioral Health, Success Health System and Brightside Health.  What I have learned is that I want to be able to spend more time with clients, when I have worked for these companies, there is a conveyor belt mentality of seeing as many patients as you can. I want to be able to spend an hour or more if needed with clients and have adequate time to follow up with clients: that is why I started Fostering Resilience. Other companies want clients with mental health conditions seen for an initial visit in 30 to 40 minute, and follow up for 10 to 15 minutes. This increases errors and poorer quality care. You are the only you and you deserve quality time and quality care.  That is the heart behind fostering resilience.
