Addictions Provider
As a novice psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP-BC), I specialize in inpatient psychiatric treatment and medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction. I earned my BSN from The University of Maryland and my MSN from Walden University.

Professionally, I have a history of diverse roles in numerous care settings, from working in med- surg, ER, IMC and case management. Throughout these years of experience, I have faced numerous situations where recognizing and understanding the importance of a patient’s overall mental health was an essential part in providing effective treatment. Since becoming a nurse over 10-years ago and Nurse Practitioner in 2021, I have always maintained an empathic and compassionate nature, and have devoted my career to serving many individuals from all walks of life. I have had additional training in Medication-Assisted Treatment and obtained my X- waiver to help me provide the most effective treatment options to my patients.

Having witnessed the profound impact addiction has on individuals and their families, both professionally and personally, I have made it my duty to ameliorate the stigma of addiction. I believe that every patient should be treated with unprejudiced and effective individualized care.

Ms. Sharla Mo

Addictions Provider
As a highly experienced board-certified Nurse Practitioner, I specialize in medication for the treatment of opioid use disorder (MAT or MOUD). I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from MidAmerica Nazarene University in 2006 and practiced as an RN for over 10 years before I earned my Masters of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner from the University of Central Missouri in 2019.

Over the course of my career, I have served a variety of populations from the indigent at an inner-city safety net hospital in Kansas City to our Nation’s veterans at multiple VA hospitals in Kansas City and Arizona for over 7 years. I possess nearly 10 years as a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist and have more recently found that this translates very well to the field of Addiction Medicine, utilizing many of the same techniques of motivational interviewing, empathetic and active listening, and education to achieve rapport and trust with patients, and to empower them to make necessary changes in their lives. I have provided telemedicine services for many years and have found it to be extremely rewarding and effective to be able to provide care to patients when and where it is convenient for them.

Addiction Medicine is my newfound passion as I am able to witness patients suffering in the depths of addiction turn their lives around—often very quickly. I have experience treating patients with both Suboxone and methadone and have found that both can be highly successful. I possess additional certifications and maintain continuing education training annually on the use of medication for opioid use disorder, and strongly believe in this evidence-based treatment. It is an honor to help facilitate recovery by providing medication for opioid use disorder which helps bring stability to patients’ lives. If you or someone you know is in need of treatment, I am here and ready to help you on this journey.
