Kara Diersing Clapp, PhD, NP-c, CNS-BC
Kara has over 35 years of experience in nursing—10 as a Psychiatric RN and 22 years as an APRN. She holds two certifications as an APRN. In 1993 she started the first aftercare program in Ohio for mental health clientele served in a home care setting. Her dissertation focused on children under age 18 years who were caregivers and resulted in the first mid-range theory on young caregiving. She loves helping people and her unique style of care blends traditional medicine with alternative traditions, using evidence-based research when possible. When describing herself, she will say “I’m an international travel junkie who likes to knit and deadlift and who married her best friend, Glenn.” And when it comes to life? “Enjoy the journey—the good, the bad, and all the stuff in between.” Kara is on most insurance panels.
