Michael’s personal motto, is that life is something to be experienced, whether it be through other cultures or seeing things from a different lens. Thus, traveling with family and friends is one of his greatest passions outside of work. It gives him a chance to experience new things with the people he loves. Most specifically, food, music, and engaging new conversations.

More about Michael Nevarez, PMHNP
Michael Nevarez is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner joining our Roseville location. He first earned a degree in Psychology to pursue his passion for the mind and its abilities. But after graduation, he realized he wanted to be in a career that helps people understand the mind and helps them become the best versions of themselves through the healing process.
As a Nurse Practitioner, Michael believes that connecting with patients and developing a therapeutic alliance is the most important aspect of the provider-patient relationship. His therapeutic style is to guide patients to find their solutions through motivational interviewing and help them become advocates for their mental health. He joins Mindful Health Solutions because of this same culture of patient-first care, as well as a culture of growth and innovation. He strives to learn more to provide the best possible care for his patients.
In patients, Michael Nevarez has a specific interest in helping adolescent and young adult populations. He believes that providing mental health resources to people in the foundation stages of their life can set them up for success in the future. This also gives more time to figure out what works best for each patient to grow with them.
One thing he has an interest in, is the idea of alternative treatments. For patients with treatment-resistant depression, traditional medications aren’t enough to alleviate symptoms. Having access to treatments such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or TMS therapy and esketamine, open a door of opportunities for patients and their providers to find the treatment plan that works best for them.
