James Harrington, PMHNP-BC
James Harrington, PMHNP-BC, is a skilled and empathetic nurse practitioner on the team of providers at Mindful Care, a mental health urgent care center in New York City’s Flatiron District.
James was drawn to psychiatry after working as a registered nurse in medicine, surgery, trauma, and intensive care, where he found himself addressing the emotional impact of his patients’ experiences in addition to treating their medical diagnoses. His medical training, natural empathy, and sharp intuition give him a unique ability to help his patients alleviate suffering and achieve their full potential.
In his practice, James most enjoys meeting face-to-face with clients from all walks of life. He is inspired by the fact that no matter a patient’s age, history, or social standing, they can always choose to grow.
He believes in treating people as partners rather than patients and strives to collaborate with them to determine the most effective treatment options, whether medication and psychotherapy or changes to lifestyle, diet, and nutrition. He loves watching symptoms improve and seeing his clients blossom.
Outside of his practice, James is happiest on the beach, and is hoping to make it to Brazil or Tahiti soon.
