About Sifat Ara Ameen, PMHNP-BC

Sifat comes to the LifeStance Health team after working as a registered nurse at an inpatient psychiatric hospital for nearly five years. As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, she will be responsible for diagnosing and creating treatment plans for patients, while ensuring that the care her patients receive meets and exceeds the professional standards of LifeStance.

Sifat has managed the care of patients with a variety of psychiatric disorders while simultaneously handling the responsibilities of a charge nurse on a crisis stabilization unit. When the hospital she was employed at switched to the EMR system, she taught classes and provided one-to-one peer training in EMR to her team members, in order to ensure that their workflow would not be affected by this change. During the current Covid pandemic, her unit was temporarily converted to only accepting Covid positive patients with psychiatric disorders where Sifat provided direct care while adapting day to day changes on safety, infection control, and monitoring symptoms of both medical and psychiatry.

Sifat possesses a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Chamberlain College and received both her Nurse Practitioner degree Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner License from Hunter College of the City University of New York.
