Margarit Akopian, RN
Maggie earned her nursing degree in California 2011. Her nursing career started in the Emergency Department (ED) where she treated a variety of patients from chronic medical conditions to physically and sometimes critically injured patients. She also developed a passion for mental health as many patients she saw suffered from depression with suicidality to severe psychotic disorders. However, taking care of the mental health population in the ED was discouraging for Maggie. Due to lack of compliance with their treatment and follow up plans, ED mental health patients would often return with same and often worse unresolved symptoms. This is what compelled Maggie to join our treatment team where innovative treatments and positive clinical outcomes are our number one priority. Maggie’s compassion, empathy, and excellence of care will be obvious the moment you meet her.
