About Kelly Crenshaw, NP-C
Ms. Crenshaw’s main objective is for patients to be the best they can be, living a freer, more content life. Personally, Kelly has had a grandmother who suffered with dementia, a close friend diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder and many other friends and family members who suffer with depression and anxiety. As a witness to the effects of these disorders on her loved ones’ lives, she has committed herself to the fascinating and rewarding study of the human mind in order to make a positive difference in the lives of her patients and their loved ones. She wants to decrease the burden of symptoms and empower patients to recover; Kelly is most passionate about working to reduce the stigma around receiving mindcare and to help people overcome that stigma to seek the help they need. As a provider, she gives compassionate, holistic care and collaborates with her patients, encouraging them to be involved in decisions about their treatment.

Kelly has always been there with not only an empathetic ear but the best medication management possible, her support has made it possible for me to make my best recovery to date, whenever I start to get depressed and thinking thoughts that are negative Kelly can help me figure out whether it is clinical depression in which I need a med change or whether I just need to talk things out and be heard... this woman deserves a medal!

Kelly is a kind, thoughtful and very approachable care provider. Very thankful for Kelly.
I was very impressed with the time spent discussing my history and actually felt [Kelly Crenshaw] listened and showed compassion.
