As of July 1, 2015:
Allied Psych is no longer offering direct clinical care at our office in Wilmington.
Allied Psychophysiology (Allied Psych) began as a private medical practice located in Wilmington, NC. The practice was founded in 2006 by Lee Porter, MSN, NP, CNS, a nurse practitioner and clinical specialist in psychiatry, dual-licensed in the state of NC with two ANCC and two BCIA national board certifications.
Allied Psych integrated state-of-the-art clinical neuroscience with a care-oriented advanced practice nursing approach. The practice provided psychological and medical support for clients with select chronic medical conditions with a neurological component.
A growing body of evidence supports use of physiological biomarkers and imaging technologies such as QEEG, SPECT and fMRI to guide effective, patient-centered treatment. Allied Psych uses QEEG as a clinical tool to assist in guiding treatment. Allied Psych also uses biofeedback, such as heart rate variability and capnometry, to assess biomarkers of nervous system function.
Allied Psych accepts self-referred adult clients (18+) as well as referrals from primary care and specialty practices. Allied Psych selectively treats clients under age 18 on a professional referral basis only - please contact the practice for details. The practice provides collaborative care with many area medical practices.
