Allied Psych – A Web History

Lee Porter, MSN, NP, CNS-PMH, established an innovative and compassionate advanced mental health nursing practice in beautiful Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. The practice, Allied Psychophysiology, provided personalized, integrative mental health care, psychotherapy, biofeedback and mindfulness, and cardiac and neuro-rehabilitation therapies, from 2005-2015. Patient outcomes were significantly better than the typical rushed reimbursement-driven medical practices.
