Felicia Jenkins got her Master of Science in Nursing as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner from the University of South Carolina. For the past five years, she has provided caring, expert care to patients in both North and South Carolina. As a result of the opioid epidemic devastating families in Charlotte, including her own, she is genuinely and deeply passionate about her involvement in providing both addiction recovery services and mental health services.
“Meeting the patient where they are” best describes the approach that she utilizes to connect with her clients. Felicia takes the requisite time to understand which stage of life the patient is currently stuck in, in order to successfully bring them to the next stage.
A Carolina girl through and through, she grew up in southeast Charlotte, where she graduated from David W. Butler High School. As a Carolina native, she is sincerely devoted to strengthening the mental wellbeing of each person in her community. She treats ages 10-70 at our Charlotte location, where she specializes in anxiety, depression, social anxiety, and PTSD.
