Meet Mackenzie …
Founder of Enlightenment Psychiatry
Years of guidance from peers and providers that I have worked with led me to become a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.
Mentors have steered me in the direction that my nursing passion has always seemed to find a great love for, mental health. I have been privileged to have had the opportunity to learn from great preceptors and have a Master’s Degree from Maryville University- Catherine McAuley School of Nursing.
Collaboration, communication, safety, and patient advocacy are top priority.
Our Therapy & Approach
Psychiatric Diagnostic Assessment
Just like your Annual Physical Exam with your Primary Care Provider, this visit is the same except we will do a Mental Wellness exam (also known as a diagnostic assessment). This visit is for EVERYONE.
Medication Management Follow Up
We will specifically discuss symptoms you’re experiencing, medication side effects, and medication changes/recommendations.
This service will help to clarify your goals either professionally or personally. The approach is individualized using different techniques specific to your goals. PRIVATE PAY OPTION ONLY
GeneSight Pharmocogenomic Visit
GeneSight Psychotropic is a pharmacogenomic test that analyzes clinically important genetic variations in your DNA. The results of the test can inform your doctor about genes that may impact how you metabolize or respond to certain medications commonly prescribed to treat depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other mental health conditions.
Change Your Life. Be Enlightened.
This is your Journey, your life. I am here to help guide you by providing education and resources for you to be the best version of yourself! You are in control. My job is to make recommendations and provide guidance by using evidence-based practice.
But ultimately you are in charge of the life you are destined to live. Can’t wait to meet you, hear about you, and watch you discover the best version of YOU!
Modern, Self Guided Approach
The care you will receive will be about maintaining equilibrium between your physical, mental, and spiritual self. Bodies and minds go together. If your mental wellness and physical wellness are not in equal states your life will feel out of balance. This is where I hope to inspire you to be enlightened.
“My goal is for every person to leave feeling enlightened and confident that this is a safe place to dig deep, be open about all experiences of their lives regardless of judgment or societal norms”
This Is Your Journey,
We have a strong ambition to manage the care of patients’ mental well-being. We strive to:
- Learn what is best for each patient’s health by talking and listening to the patient.
- Keep those with mental illnesses in their own homes, functioning as ordinary citizens as long as safely possible.
- Facilitate difficult conversations about mental health crises and mental health emergency plans by being honest, and supportive.
Mackenzie Snortum is a darling person, very easy to work with, and definitely goes above and beyond to help her patients.
I look forward to my weekly visits with Mackenzie. She is so easy to talk to and really listens. One of the many things I have learned from her is that everyone has some kind of trauma. I continue to work on all of my trauma with the assistance she provides.
Mackenzie is more knowledgeable than any other psychiatrist I have worked with. I’ll be working with her for a long time! Highly recommended.
“I had Mackenzie when she was at CCM health and I was happy to know she opened her own practice! She’s down to earth, listens, and is straightforward! She has helped me so much with my mental health!”
