Mark Monfasani is a Nurse Practitioner with graduate training in mental health and physical health. He has experience working in psychiatry, primary care, community health, LGBTQ+ health, Transgender health, sexual health, and HIV care. He sees himself as an equal and an ally with clients, which shows in his calm, casual personality and light humor, as well as in his respect for working with each person in their own individual context. 

Mark is body positive, kink and poly positive, and gender-affirming, and he supports health at any weight. Transparency and mutual shared decision-making are important to him, and he focuses on respecting individual goals, on harm reduction and trauma-informed care, and on avoiding and healing shame and stigma. He draws on his background, his curiosity and his interest in people to provide well-rounded psychiatric and mental health services that are informed by evidence-based practice, compassion and practicality. His focus is on psychopharmacology, but he uses his understanding of the body, the mind and environment to help people work toward wellness from all angles.
