Marisa Bell

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Hi, I’m Marisa (she/her), a psychiatric nurse practitioner and the founder of Talking Twenties. I believe people in early adulthood deserve high-quality and compassionate care tailored for this challenging phase of every person’s life. Your twenties (and thirties) can be awesome. Let’s make it happen for you.

I am straightforward in my approach, listen carefully and work at your pace. In treatment, I attempt to balance my expertise– the science supporting medication decisions– with your own expertise– your body and mind.

At the core, I work with people who are struggling and want to reclaim their lives. If you don’t know what’s going on, I’m happy to guide you on your path to finding out.
