Christina Stubbs, CRNA
Christina was born and raised in Southeast Idaho. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in nursing from the University of Utah. Working with acute patients at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute in Salt Lake City, she became increasingly passionate about mental health.
She continued her career at the VA Hospital in SLC where she was able to use both her nursing and psychiatric knowledge to assist veterans both physically and mentally. In 2011, she graduated from the University of New England with a master’s degree in Nurse Anesthesia.
Christina takes great pride in providing safe and exceptional anesthesia to her patients. Her experience has ranged from a small community hospital and surgeries centers to office-based anesthesia and trauma centers in Maine, New Hampshire and Idaho. This type of experience has allowed her to see a full range of patients and experience in providing the highest quality of anesthesia.
Nathan Porter, LCSW
Nathan received his masters in social work in 2004 from Walla Walla University. He is trained in CBT, EMDR, TRM, CRM and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy training through Polaris Insight and PRATI Psychedelic Research Institute. Nathan will begin intensive training this summer with MAPS for MDMA – Assisted Psychotherapy for PTSD and anxiety associated with life-threatening illnesses.
The model of treatment provided is based on the understanding that healthy relationships provide healing. These healthy relationships are with ourselves, our higher power and with those who are important to us. The barriers to these relationships are embedded in trauma histories. Growth, change and healing occur when we are taught Trauma Resiliency skills and healthy relationship skills as an individual and more effectively in a group process. Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy is used in the treatment plan as well to help in processing past traumas, rewiring the neuro-pathways in the brain and interrupting the fear loops and default mode networks that keep us stuck in the same old destructive patterns. The new pathways – neurogenesis and new insights – neuroplasticity allows us to break free from addictive behaviors and intrusive negative thoughts and feelings.
