Douglas Knapp
Douglas Knapp, Clinical Director

Douglas Knapp MSN, APRN is ANCC Board Certified as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. He completed his undergraduate and graduate education in Nursing at Jacksonville University. He also has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Columbia College. Doug has had a diverse career where he served in the United States Navy for 10 years and conducted four combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Following his honorable and faithful service, Doug realized there was an unmet need for mental health practitioners in the service of vulnerable populations, so he embarked on a personal journey to help meet this need. This led to him serving as a drug and alcohol counselor for the Indian Health Services where he facilitated the treatment for adolescent Native Americans struggling with drug and
alcohol addiction incorporating modern addiction treatment modalities with traditional Native American spiritual practices. Before returning to school to become a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Doug worked as an ICU nurse where he served his community for the entirety of the COVID-19 pandemic. The culmination of these experiences has prepared him to provide thoughtful, compassionate, and patient centered care in the treatment of children, adolescents, and their families. Doug believes that working with the entire family system is the single most
important predictive factor for better outcomes in the treatment of mental health disorder. Doug specializes in caring for individuals who are working to understand mental illness/disorder as it pertains to their lived experience and to assist these individuals and their families as they navigate the complexities of their environments on a daily basis. Doug seeks to provide each individual and their family with the highest quality care and to incorporate appropriate medication management and psychotherapy practices when applicable in order to provide a total and patient specific psychiatric treatment plan.
