Cynthia Woodcock, FNP-BC, PMHNP-BC

Nurse Practitioner

Cynthia received her Bachelor of Nursing and Master of Nursing-Family Nurse Practitioner/Public Health Clinical Nurse Specialist from the University of Missouri Columbia. She was then awarded a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship to study at the University of Otago, New Zealand where she was granted a Post Graduate Diploma in Public Health. Her experience and work in primary care prompted post-graduate work in psychiatric mental health at University of Kansas where she completed Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner certification. Cynthia values building relationships with families and working together to promote overall wellness. She utilizes a comprehensive, holistic treatment approach with conservative medication practice. An important component of treatment planning is integrating lifestyle recommendations including mindfulness, physical activity, sleep hygiene, social connection, and non-pharmacological interventions as she appreciates the interplay between emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental health.  Throughout her career, Cynthia has worked with culturally diverse populations, specifically among those with significant health disparities. Examples include providing health education as a Peace Corps Volunteer, working at a Federally Qualified Health Clinic, participating in the 2014 Ebola response in Liberia, and volunteering to provide disaster relief after the 2015 earthquake in Nepal.
