Nicholas Goodwin is a nurse practitioner licensed in Washington state. He received his Doctorate in Nursing Practice from WSU in 2018 and is certified as a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner by the ANCC. Dr. Goodwin has also received a certification from World link for hormone replacement therapy. Dr. Goodwin worked as a psychiatric nurse in state hospitals for five years before becoming a nurse practitioner.
During his experience working in mental health, he saw how complex mental illnesses are, and saw a large group of people who either did not see adequate relief with psychotropics or could not tolerate them. Because of this, he has branched out to offer alternative, effective, and tolerable methods to treat and prevent psychiatric disorders. Dr. Goodwin has become passionate about hormones because it seems to address the mental health symptoms at its source, especially in individuals with other hormone-related health issues or suboptimal lab values.
