About Heena Patel

Heena Patel-Owens started out as a Neurological ICU nurse 10 years ago, but when she discovered her true passion has always been the human psyche, she pursued a Master’s Degree in Psychiatry and currently works as a board-certified nurse practitioner at our practice.

Heena strongly believes that every individual has a unique story, perspective, purpose and set of problems, which oftentimes impacts ones mental health. She believes one’s mental health is the key to having the quality of life a person wants and her priority in treating patients is to achieve the best possible outcome with an individualized and therapeutic approach.

She graduated with a Bachelors in Nursing from Villanova University in 2010 and a Masters in Psychiatry from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 2017, and has worked with trauma, substance use disorders, and mood disorders.
