Jessica Abernathy-Lenowitz, DNP, WHNP-BC, CNM, FNP-C, PMHNP-BC, Midi Clinician
Throughout her medical career, Jessica has expanded her knowledge and expertise. With degrees in women’s health, midwifery, family medicine, and psychiatric nursing (including a doctorate), she brings a unique perspective to women’s midlife care.
“Women’s bodies amaze me, and I find the mind-body connection particularly fascinating. The uterus, ovaries, breasts, brain—all our organs and systems—communicate and work together. My education and experience have taught me to understand the whole picture.”
Her mental health training has been especially eye opening. “Too many providers tell women it’s all in their heads. I learned how important it is to be empathetic, accepting, and to create a safe place for women to tell their stories. I don’t tell patients what to do—I listen and match up solutions to their concerns.”
In addition, Jessica has extensive experience treating patients with weight and body changes. “Often women tell me I’m struggling with weight, appetite, and my metabolism isn’t what it used to be. Now we can provide them with evidence based medications that really make a difference. It’s exciting!”
