Where the Human is put back in Healthcare

Why Do We Need to Approach Medicine Differently?

At Simple Empathy, we believe in the power of human centered healthcare as a cornerstone of holistic health and wellness. Our services are designed with one goal in mind: to provide relief and enhance your well-being through medication management, weight management and nutrition counseling.

We understand that you have had medicines just thrown at you without comprehensive labs and in a clinical, sterile setting. We aim to change that by our human centered approach to mental health medication management, weight management and nutrition counseling.

What do you mean weight management?

Managing your weight and your nutrition are a part of mental health care. This is not to say that your weight is a cause of your mental struggles by any means. We understand that there are those that have different body types that don't fit the conventional medical model and we are not here to shame anyone for their body. However, we also know that the world is full of advice on how to lose weight that you don't want and how to balance gut health and things can get confusing if you're not speaking with a specialist. That's where Jessica Scarlett, NP comes in. She is here to help you figure out what is going to work best for you.

Jessica will draw your labs, look at your levels and then have a comprehensive conversation with you about where your gut health, your weight management and your mental health all intersect. We do this all in a setting much like you are used to having for therapy so that it feels more like a conversation and less like a lecture or being talked at about the body that you live in everyday. Our hope is that this feels inclusive, helpful and approachable.

Meet Nurse Practitioner Jessica Scarlett

As a born & raised Midwest girl. I love all dogs and have my two little furbabies at home that I could talk about for days.

I have explored many different aspects of medical care in my career as a nurse and nurse practitioner and have found that my passions lie in mental health care and weight/nutrition management.

There are so many parts of a woman's body that are scorned, shamed and over looked. I am not here to do that.

I am here to help you love your body while loving yourself. You can want to lose weight and not hate yourself. This, I think is the most common misconception of weight management. We are not saying that you are not worthy of love and care at the weight you are now. We are saying that if you desire to change your body we can help you to do that in a way that is safe, healthy and manageable.


Mental health care is something else near and dear to my heart because I have had my own struggles and finding a provider that understands that having a bunch of meds thrown at you is just not helpful is hard. So, that's why I'm so excited to team up with Simple Empathy to give you the care that you deserve.

Take care of your body, it is the only place you have to live.
