Thomas Krochalis, CRNP

Thomas Krochalis, CRNP is a dedicated mental health professional, board-certified as both a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-BC) and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) at our Wexford – VIP Drive clinic who provides psychiatry services in-person and via telehealth. He is currently licensed to practice as a PMHNP in Pennsylvania. His academic journey led him to Georgetown University in Washington D.C., where he received his MSN, followed by a post-master’s certification as a PMHNP from the University of New Hampshire. Thomas’s foundational philosophy in treating patients is centered around a holistic approach, where medication management plays a role but is not the sole focus. He firmly believes in integrating psychotherapy and encouraging patients to actively participate in their mental health care, ensuring a comprehensive treatment plan.

Thomas’s expertise is particularly focused on addressing the attention and anxiety sequelae of PTSD, as well as serious mental illnesses including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, serving patients across the lifespan. An accurate diagnosis stands at the core of his practice, guiding the tailored treatment plans he develops for each individual. His professional background spans various settings, including working under the medical director for Northern Nevada’s adult mental health system and at a federally qualified health center in Erie, PA. He is also a proud member of the Nursing Honor Society.

Having lived in Upstate NY, Reno, NV, and Erie, PA, Thomas chose to move to Pittsburgh to tap into the city’s rich array of treatment modalities, especially for treatment-resistant depression. Outside of his professional life, he finds joy and balance in the outdoors, fishing, gardening, and engaging in social activities. Thomas’s approach to care is fundamentally non-judgmental, aiming to provide the highest standard of care and support to his patients, reflecting his commitment to their well-being and recovery.
