Jacob “Jake” Roberts has worked in the psychiatric medical field for over 12 years.While he earned his Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner Degree at University of Utah, he worked at the behavioral health unit in the IHC Hospital in St. George Utah, and the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City Utah.
He has worked in multiple levels of behavioral health treatment settings including inpatient, outpatient, wilderness and a number of residential programs. He has grown to love treating the adolescent and young adult population, and customizes every treatment plan to their situation.
His theory on medication management is to use the least amount of medication possible to stabilize the individual. This in turn allows the patient to develop appropriate coping skills and to not always have to rely on medication to solve the problem at hand.
He is also licensed in the State of Nevada where he serves the underprivileged population in Southern Nevada. While he’s not treating patients, he spends his time mountain biking, boating, camping, and traveling so he can spend as much time as possible with his grandchildren.
