Mission

 

Altum Psych adheres to the biopsychosocial model of health. We are dedicated to helping people uncover, understand and leverage their unique neurobiology to improve psychological, physical and social well-being. We are driven by the need to improve access to high quality clinical mental and behavioral health care for all ages. Early acknowledgement, validation, thorough assessment and adaptable leading-edge interventions are our core processes. Altum Psych is committed to reforming and expanding the definition of acceptable care spaces and modalities for clinicians and patients alike.  In solidarity with families and colleagues nationwide, we vow to normalize conversations about suffering and how to relieve it appropriately. Stigma has created severe consequences for all of us at a cost too high for children, adults, families and society. 

Altum Psych’s clinicians are intensely interested in the neurobiologic networks that govern mood, emotion, affect, behavior and cognition: how they develop, how they are changed for the better or worse by experiences and injury, how we gain or regain control over them at any age, and how pharmacotherapy and other clinical neuroscience can help us learn to regulate them. Altum Psych is part of your trauma-informed community. Our clinicians understand that to mitigate the acute and chronic health effects of adverse congenital, childhood and adulthood events, robust mental health intervention is vital. We provide expert management of the biological aspects of the biopsychosocial model of mental health.


Your Clinicians

Cymande Baxter-Rogers, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC is a 2004 graduate of the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions School of Nursing. She brought these skills to rural Florida where she expertly managed the health and psychiatric well-being of thousands of children and families for thirteen years. She returned to New England in 2017 to reconnect with modern America’s transcendentalist roots. Cymande is a board certified family nurse practitioner and will soon be dually board certified in psychiatry. She evaluates and manages the psychiatric needs of children and adults. Using pharmacotherapy and brief psychotherapy, she can help you take control of your neurobiology and improve your mental health. She provides the same expertise for children, who also deserve to have control over their stress response, mood and behavior. Cymande spends her free time raising her twin boys, being in nature as much as possible and thinking as many deep thoughts as a parent of twins is allowed to think. 

Gregg Rogers, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC is a nurse practitioner with over fourteen years of experience managing the psychiatric and primary care of children and adults. After graduating from Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions in 2004 he worked thirteen years serving high-risk populations in the rural South with the National Health Service Corps. He will soon be dually certified in psychiatry. He is interested in the interaction of genetic, epigenetic, environmental, and social determinants in the development of mental illness. His goal is to provide patients the attention, time, and space to cover a lifetime of experiences that brought them to their current state and assist in their transformation to the person they really are. Gregg is invested in communicating the importance of art to our sense of wholeness. Outside of work you might see him on the trails, lakes, and slopes of the White Mountains with his wife and twin seven-year-old boys or painting quietly.   

 Cymande and Gregg are licensed in New Hampshire and Florida.
