April Dvorak, PMHNP-BC

Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner in Eugene and Portland, OR

April Dvorak, PMHNP-BC

April Dvorak, PMHNP-BC, is a Board-Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and the founder of Head Well – Integrative Psychiatry, a mental health practice. April provides high-quality and comprehensive care to all patients 16 years and older in Eugene and Portland, Oregon. She also offers telehealth.

A native of Houston, Texas, April started her academic journey at Texas A&M University, graduating in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences. She continued her education at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, where she studied undergraduate nursing in 2011.

She achieved her Master of Science in Nursing and board certification from the ANCC as a Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner in 2017. 

Recently, April relocated to Eugene, Oregon, and currently serves as an attending practitioner at the Oregon State Hospital (OSH) in Salem.

She has extensive experience in inpatient and outpatient settings and a wide range of patient populations, including serious mental illness (SMI), corrections, forensic, adolescent, and geriatric psychiatry.

After years of practicing in the public sector and clunky, bureaucratic institutions, April wanted to build a model based on efficiency and long-term, sustainable solutions. She believes in making sense of things and working through tough problems. April started Head Well – Integrative Psychiatry in hopes of doing both.

Her clinical approach is integrative and functionally rooted. She is fascinated by how personality structure and emotional and behavior patterns account for much of how we view and interact with the world. People co-create their realities, and understanding oneself is the key to a cohesive, productive, and meaningful existence. 

April is passionate about mental health advocacy and maintaining humanity, rationality, and integrity in psychiatry and social services. She loves to learn and is in the process of obtaining a certificate from Integrative Psychiatric Institute (IPI).
