About Tanya Bush, PMHNP

Tanya worked in the diagnostic industry and for a biotechnology company for several years, with a specific focus in diabetes ­­– which enhanced her interest in the relationship between mind and body, particularly with chronic disease. She later returned to school, earning degrees in nursing from UNC-Chapel Hill and Western Kentucky University. Tanya has experience working with patients of all ages, having provided psychiatric services in Community Health Clinics, private practice, at the bedside in nursing homes, and by telepsychiatry. She and her husband recently moved back to North Carolina and she looks forward to making new friends and finding opportunities for serving in her new hometown.

Ms. Bush personalized my visit: remembered aspects of my life though I have not seen her in a long time


October 29, 2021

Her professionalism and humor are impeccable.


October 18, 2021

Takes everything you say into consideration and uses that to create the best plan of treatment for you individually


October 17, 2021

She was able to pick up on my child s needs almost immediately without being told. We were at a previous psychiatrist for years and was not listened to about concerns. MindPath is very observant and caring.


October 7, 2021

When I made my first appointment I realized I was going to treated fairly and with respect. In my experience most offices don t like to help people with ADHD and when they do it s very clear they don t trust you. At MindPath I feel trusted and safe enough to be open about my symptoms and mental state. MindPath is what mental health care should be.

Thorough, consistent and cutting edge.

Ms.Bush s willingness to listen and communicate with me about my medication management without hassle. I enjoy the one on one and comfortable sessions which I have not always found with providers.

They are very caring about everything I talk about. This is a wonderful place and I m very thankful I found someone that I feel comfortable talking to.


May 10, 2021

It's really just how Dr. Bush seems to genuinely care about her patients. It's easy to talk to her and work with her. Everything's worked great within the somewhat strict parameters. I appreciate the care that's been given to me.

She made it clear I shouldn t feel ashamed for feeling the way I feel.


April 28, 2021

The therapist is very kind and helpful.


April 26, 2021

Sometimes I have a lot of apprehension about addressing my Mental Health issues but Nurse Practitioner Bush actively listens & addresses each issue carefully. I feel like I have a provider who cares.


April 15, 2021

Transitioning to virtual visits for my healthcare has been seamless. The provider still manages to remember me though she's seen hundreds of patients between visits. Thank you! Mental health stability is hard-fought and you made it rather effortless.

I enjoy working with Tanya very much and look forward to our sessions.
