Kimberly McDonald

My name is Kimberly McDonald. I am a Family Nurse Practitioner and have just completed my dual certification as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I am excited to announce that I have recently joined Hayden and Associates at TMS Huntsville doing pharmacological management for psychiatric illnesses. I am delighted to be part of Dr. Hayden’s team and welcome an opportunity to give quality care to those suffering with mental illness.

For the past two years I have been practicing as a family nurse practitioner at Bradford Health Services in-patient, working with individuals struggling with drug addiction. Over the past year, I have shifted from a dual role in primary medical management and medical assisted treatment in addiction medicine to exclusive psychiatric care with a broader focus on mental illnesses. I have experience with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder.

I have a heart for the underserved and veteran population and have had the honor of working with the Community Free Clinic, and the Downtown Rescue Mission in cooperation with Huntsville Hospital. I believe dignity and respect for those struggling with mental disorders is essential in their recovery process.

I believe that counseling should go hand in hand with medical management. I will work enthusiastically with therapists and counselors to provide medical support for their clients. I welcome the opportunity to cooperate with therapists following the most recent studies and clinical guidelines. I am honored to help your clients through a collaboration of care for the goal of recovery.
