Minneapolis Ketamine and TMS Clinic Expands Team
Dr. Kellie LeBlanc Joins Advanced Brain + Body Clinic
Minneapolis, MN November 18, 2021
Advanced Brain + Body Clinic (AB+BC), a growing ketamine and TMS clinic in Minneapolis/St.Paul, added Dr. Kellie LeBlanc to the team, opening more appointment options for those struggling with PTSD, severe depression, and anxiety. AB+BC works with most major insurance providers to make mental healthcare accessible to those who need it most.
“Dr. LeBlanc brings tremendous depth in clinical care to AB+BC, with her direct intensive care unit (ICU) and recovery experience, where dealing with acute depression and anxiety are a key part of the job,” said Dr. Brian Johns, co-founder of AB+BC. “Understanding the full spectrum of mind and body is what sets AB+BC apart from a typical ketamine infusion clinic. To the patient, holistic care means making both medical and lifestyle changes that help a particular treatment provide sustainable success even after years of severe depression, anxiety or PTSD.”
Dr. LeBlanc has a long and distinguished career as a nursing professional, skillfully delivering the highest quality evidence-based care to patients. She is known for her genuine communication, kindness, and professionalism throughout her wide range of clinical experiences, including ICU, cardiovascular ICU, and recovery room care. She is looking forward to working with AB+BC patients to help them find the best antidepressant and other treatments for their needs.
Dr. LeBlanc is a native of Canada and a long-time resident of Minnesota. She obtained her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in Utah. She also came to understand the distinct disconnect in healthcare for treating mental health issues. These core beliefs led her to begin her journey as a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) and to explore clinical solutions for treatment-resistant depression with ketamine and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy.
Dr. LeBlanc is certified with the Minnesota Board of Nursing and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and is currently pursuing her professional certification as a PMHNP.
AB+BC is a holistic treatment-resistant depression clinic in Minneapolis-St. Paul specializing in TMS, ketamine and esketamine (Spravato) treatments. Our two founding psychiatrists are board-certified MDs and many years’ experience in practicing psychiatric medicine combined with holistic brain health best practices. AB+BC is the only clinic to offer all four routes of ketamine administration prescribed by mental health doctors.
