Maren Rinker, DNP, APRN, CNP
Family Psychiatric & Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
Dr. Rinker (formerly Schiess) is a board-certified nurse practitioner in child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry. Her approach to psychiatry is evidence-based, holistic, and collaborative.
Dr. Rinker has practiced in schools, residential facilities, community health centers, and multidisciplinary clinics, but she most enjoys independent practice because it affords her the time and flexibility to truly get to know her patients.
Dr. Rinker earned her Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Nursing from Vanderbilt University and her Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of Minnesota.
In addition to her clinical practice, Dr. Rinker is pursuing certification in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy through The Synthesis Institute and the Integrative Psychiatry Institute, and she is an adjunct professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing.
