Trish M McPhee MSN, Family Nurse Practitioner-c
Trish joined the practice in 2021 as a Family Nurse Practitioner (licensed in 2005). She is Board Certified in Family Medicine (2006), certified in GAPS protocol (Gut and Psychology Syndrome 2012) and is a Diplomate in the American College of Anthroposophic Medicine (2017).
She cultivated the passion for healing and health as a young person and joins the practice with almost 3 decades of nursing experience. Having grown up in the south shore of Massachusetts, roaming the forest and beaches, she left Massachusetts as a young adult and soon landed in California. There she raised her now grown three children.
Her nursing pursuits have included experience in the intensive care unit, in the emergency department, in primary care settings, in acute palliative care, in home health settings, in two different anthroposophic clinics, as faculty at Sierra College in Rocklin, CA (teaching RNs), as well as in offering anthroposophic home care workshops throughout the US.
She reports, “nursing feeds my soul.” She has always been attracted to health and wellness, and the nurturing role of nursing is a perfect fit. True health, that is, finding the healing solution rather than the quick fix is her passion. To this end she is inspired by good nutrition (food and gardening), healthy relationships, and big picture health. While she has spent many years in hospitals and recognizes the need for this, the striving is for balanced body, soul, and spirit. She has always sought out options that support the whole person.
She graduated from California State University with her Bachelors of Science in Nursing and obtained her Registered Nurse license in 1993. From the University of Phoenix, she obtained her Masters in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2005.
Her joys include anything outdoors, gardening, food and visual art, especially sculpture.
