About Our Team

We help you set a new baseline, navigate your mental health journey, and guide you to peak wellness.

 

We’re on your side. Your sounding board, and the supporting system to see things from your perspective, not prescribe prematurely.

 

We don’t make medication decisions for you — instead, we provide you with options and empower you to make choices about your care. 

 

While we’re experts in medication management, we’re open to exploring ideas you initiate and love to offer education about cutting-edge treatments and empirical evidence. 

 

We hold a controlled container, where you can feel safe to process a traumatic event, navigate a life transition, or simply seek treatment. 

 

We honor the scientific process, and also know that shifting the paradigm around mental health treatment is a must to honoring ALL the pieces that make up who you are. 

 

We believe that no two clients are the same, and we pride ourselves on a vast scope of prescribing abilities, dosing techniques, and treatment modalities. 

 

We are Peak Interactive Wellness, a private psychiatric practice specializing in medication management for mental health — and all the pieces that make up who you are — so you can keep living your story.

CAROLINE FERNANDEZ, MS, PMHNP-BC,APN

Caroline "Callie" Fernandez is a Columbia University trained and Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with extensive experience in medication management and psychotherapy. While Callie cares for clients across the lifespan, she has additional training in the treatment of children and adolescents and integrates developmental strategies into all of her client work.

Since focusing solely on medication might not address all of a client's goals, Callie strives to understand the whole individual to tailor unique treatment recommendations. Callies approach considers a client's nutrition, physical activity, social patterns, as well as unique features such as one's cultural identity and background; this is shaped by her own experience as a 2nd generation Cuban-American.

Callie strives to create a space where clients feel welcome and seen. By prioritizing active, neutral, and non-judgmental listening, Callie works to build an interactive assessment with the client's help. From this, Callie works with clients in order to come up with a collaborative treatment plan that encompasses their needs, goals, and evidence-based practices
