Mental health conditions can be profoundly painful and isolating, making it difficult to seek help.

We’re grateful to be practicing psychiatry during this era in which there are so many new treatment possibilities and new hope for those with mental health conditions.
Jibran Ahmed is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) joining Mindful Health Solution’s Seattle clinic. While his work is in general psychiatry, he has an interest in schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and eating disorders.
Jibran is passionate about the importance of people having easy access to mental healthcare. Before joining the healthcare field, he taught in low-income and underserved communities. Seeing the impact that a lack of mental healthcare had in these areas drove him to return to school and begin a career focused on providing that much-needed care. In his eyes, treatment can significantly increase the quality of life both mentally as well as physically.
He joined Mindful Health Solutions due to his patient-oriented style. He works with patients on a one-to-one level and ensures that both parties work together to create the best treatment plan. Having access to innovative treatment options such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy and esketamine provide each patient with more chances at finding success. Jibran Ahmed has seen the positive effects of these treatments and looks forward to being able to offer holistic help to his patients and make a difference.

Tamra Johnson is a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) with over a decade of experience. Her interest in psychiatry began when working as a nurse in a primary care setting. She saw how many people struggled with anxiety and depression symptoms without much help. She was connected to these patients and their stories. As a result, she decided she wanted to be in a place where she could help ease their suffering.
Tamra specializes in working with patients who suffer from depression, anxiety, ADHD, and Bipolar disorder. She also works with both adolescents and adults. With her interest in integrative psychiatry, she wants to explore treatment options with each patient to get them the relief they need. Tamra agrees with our belief that mental health care is not a one-size-fits-all solution. There are a number of alternative treatments that can be customized to each patient. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy and esketamine treatments can be used with medication management to meet patients’ unique needs. In fact, she has had several patients experience success with such alternative treatment plans.
Tamra Johnson would describe her work style as very collaborative. She wants to understand each patient’s unique story to best help them move in their journey to wellness. She is excited to work somewhere that values patients first, and she can’t wait to help patients find relief and success.
Dr. William Kamens sees adults for general psychiatry and is happy to help patients with major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD, and other conditions. Psychiatry has been an enlightening way for Dr. Kamens to see his patients broadly as people, in ways that allowed for complexity and differences. He finds it humbling to work in a field where there is so much still unexplained and unknown.
One main reason why Dr. William Kamens joined Mindful Health Solutions is because he wants his patients to have access to a wide range of evidence-based treatments, including medications, psychotherapy, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). TMS and Esketamine are newer treatments that we can offer patients when they haven’t found success with other treatments. Dr. Kames feels fortunate to be part of a practice with so much expertise in these treatments.
Dr. Kamens has a collaborative approach with his patients. He likes to know what his patients’ goals are so that he can tailor the treatment to help them achieve their goals as much as possible. Knowing what’s important to his patients helps him to know what treatments to recommend or when to suggest a change to the treatment. He find that his patients experience the most success if they are open to talking about their treatment options.
Michael Speed is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) with a specific focus on ADHD, OCD, depression, anxiety, and mood stability management. He has worked with pediatric populations and adults as a PMHNP, along with ages across the lifespan as a registered nurse, with most of his RN time working on a pediatric inpatient psych unit. While doing his military service, he developed an understanding that personal happiness and success both begin with stable mental health. Recognizing this need contributed to his pursuit to become a mental health provider, and his overall goal to help others improve their quality of life through mental health improvement.
As a PMHNP, his working style is a collaborative approach. Treatment planning should be created jointly between provider and patient, keeping the patient’s best interest in mind. He believes in working towards helping the patient achieve a healthy life balance and meet the needs of each person individually.
Michael Speed also has training in alternative treatments such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and esketamine to provide to his patients. He is invested in making sure that patients have access to alternative treatments in order to find what works best for them. These treatments offer an approach to mental health care that offers successful completion of patient goals after medication trials have not been beneficial. His overall belief is that working towards helping the patient achieve a healthy life balance and meet the needs of each person individually means doing what specifics are best for them and providing the options to do so.
Dr. Christopher Wilson has been in the psychiatry field for over twenty years and works with patients who have treatment-resistant depression, as well as ADHD, PTSD, and other mood disorders.

Dr. Wilson has witnessed the difficulties and struggles of those who don’t respond to medications. He understands how each patient’s treatment plan is different from one another.
