From the Doctor

I fell in love with Northern Florida while attending medical school at the University of Florida in Gainesville, and after completing my psychiatry residency and child & adolescent psychiatry fellowship training felt compelled to move back to the region in its urban center of Jacksonville and the beautiful Beaches throughout the rapidly growing Northeast Florida region to serve the children, teenagers, adults and families of this wonderful area. My wife, kiddos, and puppies share a love of the outdoors, and we enjoy our leisure time by playing at the park, beach, zoo, and gyms, exploring new restaurants, attending Jags games, and giving back to the community through volunteering in coaching youth sports to community service for charitable organizations such as AngelAID and Habijax.

As a psychiatrist who manages a broad spectrum of mental/behavioral health conditions for patients of all ages, my philosophy of care entails providing the highest quality, evidence-based, individualized care possible, tailored to each of my patients and his/her families. I am excited to work with children, teens, adults and families in developing self-awareness and wellness, while making positive transformations to lead their most healthy, fulfilling lives. I enjoy integrating medication management and psychotherapy services, including ketamine-assisted psychedelic therapy, in designing a treatment plan that considers the patient holistically to help my patients and their families overcome their most difficult challenges, process and cure their past traumas, and achieve their greatest treatment and life goals with maximal support. I am dedicated to providing the finest care imaginable and advocating for the best interest of my patients and their families always.

FROM THE NURSE PRACTITIONER

Hello and welcome,

I’m Kristen Huber, and I’d like to share a bit about my personal and professional journey with you.

Raised in the suburbs outside Baltimore, Maryland, I was always intrigued by the intricacies of the human psyche.  This fascination with understanding the mind led me to obtain a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Delaware in 2008. Not stopping there, I continued my educational pursuit at Towson University, earning my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in 2014.

Throughout my career, I’ve been honored with various recognitions for my dedication to nursing. In 2018, I was humbled to receive Baltimore’s Top 50 Nurses Award. My path in nursing has been diverse and enlightening, spanning from psychiatry, neurology and cardiology, extending to nursing informatics, management, and addiction medicine.

My academic pursuits culminated in 2023 when I achieved my Master of Science in Nursing degree from Walden University, paving the way for my current role as a licensed Advanced Practice Registered Nurse in the beautiful state of Florida.

My relocation to Florida in 2020, during the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic, was marked by personal heartbreak — the tragic loss of my younger brother to a fentanyl overdose. This devastating experience, along with other personal adversities, has only solidified my dedication and commitment to help make a transformative difference in the lives of yours and others.

My decision to join forces with Dr. Raj and Enhance Psych was driven by our shared high-value vision: to provide the kind of gold-standard, comprehensive, holistic care I’d want for myself and my family. With Enhance Psych, I can move away from the hurried, detached approach often seen in today’s healthcare, which tends to focus solely on treating illness. Rather, I can do something much better for everyone involved: build enduring relationships with my patients and their families, prioritizing your overall health and well-being.

Outside my profession, I cherish moments with my family, bask in Florida’s glorious sunshine, and relish our great outdoors.  From skateboarding and surfing to music and continually quenching my thirst for knowledge with a love of learning, every day brings a new opportunity to celebrate life and enjoy the moment.

Thank you for allowing me to share my story with you, so you could get to know me. I look forward to journeying with you towards helping you attain continual, optimal healing and well-being. 

Warmly,

Kristen
