About Catherine Ellenberger, MSN, ANP-BC

I went into psychiatry because I feel it is the field where I can truly make a difference with patients and families. I am passionate about listening and understanding my patients so that I can help them in the best way possible. My overall care philosophy is to see my patients in a holistic way. I think what differentiates me from other providers is my experience and insight into different clinical situations that impact patients, particularly for patients who have underlying medical conditions. I have spent many years studying in large academic university settings and was exposed to many acutely ill patients. After a long time living in Miami and attending graduate school there, I speak medical Spanish. I love Brene Brown, I find her TED talks very inspirational. One of her quotes that I find inspirational is, “Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.”
