AMY VALESH-PETERSON, CNP
Areas of Expertise: Chronic Pain, PTSD, Autism (without seizures/epilepsy).
Starting October 1st
Amy is a dual board-certified Family and Emergency Nurse Practitioner and have spent most of my career working in emergency rooms and urgent care settings. Over the years I came to recognize some of the limitations of Western medicine, in that most medical issues were treated with a variety of medications. Some medications helped while others simply did not. Several medications had terrible side effects requiring additional medications to treat those negative side effects. I’ve repeatedly seen medications interact negatively with other medications patients were on, leading to a host of additional problems. I increasingly started to feel that I wasn’t helping people in the way I wanted to. I wanted patients to improve and get relief from their symptoms without additional problems caused by their treatment. I longed for a way to help my patients genuinely feel better, with significant improvement if not complete resolution of their symptoms.
What Our Patients Say
"Worth every penny, the long drive and the wait! My son has seizures, a brain injury and autism. And I wasn't about to put him on pharmaceuticals. I was recommended to Holos Health by other parents of children with special needs, and am I glad I went with their recommendations! When I first read the reviews I was skeptical, but I'm so grateful for the kindness, well educated doctors, and very welcoming environment of Holos Health. My sons life has been changed all because their doctors took the time to Help me through the whole process! Thank you."
