Shaneika Lindsay is a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner who is dedicated to providing personalized and empathetic care to those in need of mental healthcare. Her academic journey began with a B.S. in Biology from the University at Albany. She later received her B.S. in Nursing from Pace University and went on to attain her Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner M.S. from Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing, graduating magna cum laude.
Shaneika’s practice focuses on medication management. Occasionally Shaneika may believe that additional therapy is also needed and ask that you bring a therapist into your care team to provide the best outcome.
For the last seven years Shaneika has diligently provided care to our nation’s veterans, working on a dual diagnosis inpatient psychiatric unit in the VA NY Harbor Healthcare System. In her time at the VA she has gained extensive experience in the management of substance abuse and co-morbid psychiatric disorders. While attending Hunter College she completed a yearlong clinical rotation at Casa Promesa, a mental health outpatient and inpatient facility that services some of the most vulnerable and underserved populations in the South Bronx.
As a Nurse Practitioner her primary focus is holistic care, taking into consideration all physical, psychological, interpersonal, and environmental factors when creating unique treatment plans. She strongly believes that each of these areas are interconnected and play a significant role in the mental health and vitality of any individual.
Her goal is to work simultaneously with clients to create a safe, non-judgmental, and collaborative treatment environment that will be effective in achieving sustained healing and positive self-development.
