Our Mission

The iTrust Wellness Group strives to provide the highest quality mental health care to our clients in Greenville, SC. Our treatment model is based on wellness. Instead of only focusing on specific symptom relief, iTrust Wellness Group's psychiatric nurse practitioners and mental health specialists seek to improve intellectual, spiritual, emotional, occupational, physical, and social facets of our client's life. The treatment plan integrates both medication management and/or therapy. We treat people from all facets of life, including commercially insured clientele, Medicare insured, and uninsured. We desire to bring psychiatric and mental health care to everyone, not just a few who can afford it.


Our goal is to help alleviate your symptoms and provide you with the coping skills and insight to bring stability to your life. iTrust Wellness Group also embraces technology where all clinical notes, forms, and admission packets are completed on a computer to ensure the highest level of efficiency, organization, and legibility. The team at iTrust Wellness Group looks forward to helping you in your mental health journey.

Pup Patrol

I am a native of Greenville, SC. I’m still just a puppy, but I love coming to work with my human Nathaniel.

Although I tend to be shy when meeting new people, I know my cuteness always brings a smile to people’s face. I  can possibly be bribed with crunchy treats, but you didn’t hear that from me. My favorite things to do in my free time are taking long walks, terrorizing my brother, Maestro, and snuggling up in my blankets.
