Samaritan Behavioral Health

Teresa Hutsell, ARNP, PMHNP-BC

At Samaritan’s Behavioral Health Services, you will find providers and staff who participate in a holistic approach to care. Behavioral Health Services is conveniently located in the family medicine department, which helps to remove barriers or stigma for those needing outpatient treatment. With outpatient treatment, patients visit their behavioral and mental health providers during regular appointment hours.

The providers of Behavioral Health work closely with the referring and/or primary care providers in family medicine to provide integrated care, so everyone stays up-to-date regarding the coordinated treatments and care plans for their patients.

Behavioral and mental health providers include Teresa Hutsell, a board-certified advanced practice psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and also an advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP, PMHNP-BC); and Robert Muehlberger, a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC).

Teresa diagnoses mental/behavioral conditions—such as anxiety, depression, bipolar, etc.—and prescribes medications when needed as part of the treatment plans.

Robert assists patients with brief therapy, understanding and connecting with the mental or behavioral health services available, as well as helping them to understand how following a treatment plan can benefit their symptoms.
