In addition to being a PMHNP-BC, he holds licenses as a Registered Nurse; Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist; and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.
Asked about his career path, Allan replied, “I have worked in mental health as a Registered Nurse and therapist for many years. I felt a need to improve my ability to provide services and decided that becoming a PMHNP was the best avenue. Presbyterian Medical Services was a good fit for me since it allows me to provide services to a population in need.”
When not working, he loves travel, history, cultural studies, and spirituality.
