Mandy Christensen, C.N.M., P.M.H.N.P.

Certified Nurse Midwife

Amanda “Mandy” is a seasoned healthcare professional with a strong background in women’s health and mental health.

Mandy graduated from Weber State University’s Nursing Program in 2003, after which she spent her early career gaining experience in general nursing. Mandy worked in various healthcare settings, including inpatient medical-surgical units, home health/hospice, and outpatient dialysis.

In 2008, she found her passion in women’s health and began working as a Labor and Delivery nurse, providing care and support to women and families in Kentucky and Utah. Her dedication to women’s health led her to pursue a Master’s degree in Nurse Midwifery, which she earned from Frontier Nursing University in 2015. She is board-certified as a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) and has had the privilege of delivering over 800 babies at American Fork Hospital and Holy Cross Mountain Point Hospital.

Recognizing the importance of mental health in women’s health, Mandy expanded her expertise. In 2021, she earned international certification through Pearson Vue and Postpartum Support International as a Perinatal Mental Health certified medical provider (PMH-C). This certification underscores her dedication to helping women facing perinatal mental health challenges.

While continuing to work as a midwife, she pursued a Post Graduate certificate from Frontier Nursing University, specializing in psychiatry and mental health. During her training, Mandy gained valuable experience in addressing a wide range of mental health issues in the inpatient and outpatient setting. Her experience includes severe mental illness, eating disorders, substance use, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, and ADHD.

In April 2023, Mandy achieved certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) across the lifespan, further cementing her expertise in the field of mental health.

In August 2023, Mandy took on the role of Director of the Mental Health Division at Valley Women’s Health, where she has the unique distinction of being dual-certified and dual-licensed as both a nurse-midwife and psychiatric nurse practitioner. Her special interest lies in perinatal OCD and anxiety, mood disorders, and birth trauma. She also likes to work with the teen population and welcomes the LGBTQ+ community to her practice.

Mandy is known for her proficiency in evidence-based treatment modalities, ensuring that her patients make informed decisions about their treatment. In addition to cognitive behavioral therapy and compassion-focused therapy, she can speak to a variety of other psychotherapies, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Exposure Response Prevention Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills, and Internal Family Systems.

Mandy’s professional affiliations demonstrate her commitment to the field. She is a member of Postpartum Support International (PSI), actively supporting the awareness, prevention, and treatment of mental health issues related to childbearing. She also led the 2023 Utah County “Climb Out of the Darkness” event, which raises awareness for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.

As a member of the Neuroscience Education Institute, the American Psychiatric Nurses Association, the APNA Utah chapter, and PSI, Mandy is deeply committed to ongoing learning and well-connected to the mental health community.

Beyond her professional life, Mandy enjoys gardening, exploring new dining experiences, and spending quality time with her family. Mandy is a dedicated mother of four children, originally hailing from “Kentuckiana” but having spent most of her adult life in Utah

“My dedication to this field is deeply rooted in the challenges I’ve encountered within my own family. These personal experiences have not only fostered empathy but also fueled my passion for mental health care. I understand firsthand the critical importance of access to quality care when it is needed most. It is my heartfelt mission to provide the same level of compassionate care and support that I would expect for my own family.”- Mandy
