Dr. Streb believes in taking the time with her patients to focus on their strengths and competencies.  While a Peace Corps Volunteer in West Africa, Dr. Streb embraced the saying, “going slowly does not prevent you from arriving.”  As a mental health provider, Dr. Streb is able weave her diverse experiences with her own experience of being a parent of two young children into her practice- to think broadly, integrate academic knowledge, and empathize with a wide range of individual experiences, including a parent’s perspective.   

With CPE Clinic, LLC, Dr. Streb will be focusing on therapeutic issues associated with children, adolescents, and the family unit.  We all worry about our kids. Sometimes our worries are about whether they are developing in a healthy way. Or about whether they are happy—we don’t like to see them sad or suffering. And sometimes we worry because a child’s behavior is causing problems for him—or for the whole family.  Dr. Streb understands these concerns from her experience as a mental health practitioner and from being a parent.  Dr. Streb recognizes the challenges of parenthood and appreciates the additional complexity of managing mental wellness and emotional health for the child, parents, the family, and the school system.  She is committed to making a difference. 

Dr. Streb’s practice is informed by over a decade of experience in public health programming, education, research, and management.  Psychiatric care allows her to get out from behind the desk to use her strengths and skills one-on-one with patients.  Dr. Streb’s studies have focused on the integration of public health research, medication management, and clinical counseling methods to collaborate with patients to meet their mental health goals.

Prior to earning her doctorate degree, Dr. Streb earned a Master’s degree in public health, worked as hospital-based RN in neurology, and also served as adjunct faculty at local universities in the departments of Community/Public Health Nursing.  In 2006, she was the recipient of a Fulbright grant and worked on health-related stigma issues in West Africa.  Through these diverse experiences, she always maintained a focus on human behavior and mental health issues.  Doing more for the individuals she met in her career led her to pursue a doctorate in nursing practice.
