Emily Pardue, PMHNP, is Board Certified as a Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and sees patients for psychopharmacology assessments and ongoing medication management. Emily has been working in the field of eating disorders for 10 years. She obtained her Master’s Degree from Boston College’s School of Nursing and has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Middlebury College.
In her work, Emily is drawn to the interconnectedness of body and mind and the relationship between nutrition and mental health. She started her medical career working in a primary care practice in Maine that integrated mental health treatment into their medical care model. She truly enjoyed improving access to care for patients and their families while closely collaborating with patients’ primary care providers. Emily then relocated back to Massachusetts, working as an NP at Walden Behavioral Care.
While at Walden, Emily provided psychiatric and medical care to patients throughout their continuum of care, including the inpatient psychiatric unit, inpatient eating disorder unit, residential center, and partial hospitalization program. She has extensive experience treating patients with eating disorders, anxiety and trauma, depression and mood disorders, and ADHD.
In her free time, you will find Emily with her family. She enjoys baking bread and trying new cookie recipes with her children. Emily also has a love for reading, most recently revisiting some of her favorite books from childhood. Although Emily has always loved to travel abroad, over the past few years she has enjoyed exploring closer to home, discovering new restaurants, bookstores, and nature attractions throughout New England.
I’ve had the pleasure of sharing cases with Emily Pardue both in a partial hospitalization setting and an outpatient setting. She’s incredibly knowledgeable in her field and uses an empathetic approach when building relationships with her patients. She takes time to get to know each person to ensure she has the information she needs to best help them. Emily is highly collaborative when working within a team.Dara Brenner, MA, LMHC
