Krystal Donley, PMHNP, provides medication management and psychotherapy to everyone from the age of six and up at Desert View Counseling & Consulting in Phoenix and Peoria, Arizona. She offers personalized care, creating treatment plans tailored to meet a person’s life challenges and mental health needs.
Krystal graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. Though she was called to work directly with patients, she felt it was important to continue her education.
She completed her master’s in nursing education from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona, then turned her attention to mental health. Krystal proudly received her post-master’s psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) certificate from Maryville University in St. Louis, Missouri.
Krystal has 10 years of bedside nursing in acute care settings. She has trained new nurses in the medical/surgical, cardiac care, and post-anesthesia units, and in neurointensive care and trauma intensive care. She also has three years of experience working with patients in an inpatient psychiatric hospital.
Her passion is for working with children and adolescents, helping them and their families improve their communication and overall life functioning. She also enjoys working with adults, especially the elderly. Her goal is to build a supportive environment and positive working relationships where clients can become the best version of themselves.
