Alexa Boubalos, PMHNP-BC

Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

Alexa is a Bay Area native from Belmont, CA. She is a Columbia and UCSF trained board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) who provides comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and medication management for children and adolescents in the community. She values thorough, evidence-based and compassionate patient-centered care. She is a strong advocate for health and wellness in her patients and emphasizes the role that sleep, nutrition, exercise and socialization have on how her patients feel.

Before pursuing advanced practice nursing, Alexa worked for several years in the adolescent residential eating disorder treatment setting and then worked as an RN in Edgewood’s youth crisis stabilization center in San Francisco as well as in the school setting. She received her NP training working with both children and adults in a variety of outpatient, crisis, residential, urgent care, jail and community settings until completing her final residency in outpatient psychiatry at Palo Alto Medical Foundation in Mountain View.

During her spare time, Alexa enjoys spending time with her family, friends and her fiancé. Alexa loves skiing, travel, running, reading and discovering local food gems on the Peninsula. As a creative outlet on the weekends, she makes floral centerpieces for her friends’ weddings and showers. Alexa has also begun writing for CHC’s blog. Alexa loves working with kids and continues to be so grateful to call CHC home!
