Tyler Mostul PMHNP
Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
Tyler Mostul, PMHNP is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Tyler uses he/him
and they/them pronouns. Tyler works to address various mental health challenges through medication management as well as psychotherapy. They graduated from Yale School of Nursing in 2017, and completed a residency at the San Francisco Veteran’s Hospital in 2018. They are a unique psychiatric prescriber in that they are openly critical of psychiatry and psychiatric medications. This does not mean that they do not support the usage of medications, it means that they are intricately aware of the risks involved in doing so. Tyler feels it is their job to thoroughly discuss the risks and benefits of using psychiatric medications in order to help you feel fully informed of the options you have in addressing your concerns.
Tyler Mostul, PMHNP has particular interests in helping people be on the least amount of
psychiatric medications as possible in order to reduce the risk of potential negative impacts medications can have, and they have a thorough understanding of the potential challenges with psychiatric drug withdrawal and psychiatric medication tapering. Psychotherapy and psychiatric medication tapering is the focus of Tyler’s practice. They also have significant interests in implementing mindfulness strategies, nature, and spirituality into mental health. Although, it is not necessary for you to want those things involved in your care. They value and enjoy taking sufficient time in connecting with clients and working together to figure out how to best achieve your goals.
Tyler Mostul, PMHNP uses several guiding principles in their practice:
People are inherently good.
We do the best we can under the conditions we are given.
Often the conditions we find ourselves in are extremely stressful, and this significantly affects our experience in the world.
Under extreme stress, we often do things we would not normally do. These behaviors may seem irrational, but when seen in the larger context, they are understandable and reasonable.
Mental health symptoms are often a message to us, which if understood and learned from, have the potential to liberate us from our suffering.
Tyler acknowledges that we live in a society where racism, sexism, income inequality, homophobia, and transphobia are powerful forces that often negatively impact our lives in significant ways. They acknowledge that various traumatic experiences including and not limited to those just listed, influence the way that we live, and can be the main reason we are experiencing the types of distress we find ourselves in. Their therapy practice is heavily influenced by intersectional feminism, radical therapy, mindfulness, the Wim Hof Method, and psychodynamic therapy. This means that they have an understanding of how various forms of oppression may be impacting you, and are sensitive to the complexity of the dynamics involved in your life. Tyler believes the human body and spirit can thrive through connecting with our breath and nature, and there can be meaning discovered in the distress you are experiencing.
As a provider, their goal is to work with you in a way that you find useful, and not rigidly fit you into a particular modality. They use principles from CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), CBT for psychosis, DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), also known as “Tapping.” This modality can be very useful in helping us release emotional distress and trauma from our body in a way that cognitive and behavioral methods cannot.
Tyler enjoys yoga, meditation, and LOVES the Wim Hof Method. They also enjoy kayaking, observing wildlife (particularly birds), hiking, cycling, reading, chilling by any body of water, and disconnecting from technology as much as possible.
