Sarah Ferrillo, DNP

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Sarah Ferrillo earned her first degree, an associates in nursing from the St. Vincents College in 2002. A lifelong pursuit of learning lead her to follow with earning her BSN in 2012 from Sacred Heart University, her MSN in 2016 from Wilkes University and her DNP in 2018 from Wilkes University. She is currently pursuing her post master’s graduate certificate in Psychiatric/Mental Health.

Throughout her many years of schooling she worked as an RN at Yale New Haven Hospital, as well as in the office setting. Most of her RN work was in cardiology. After becoming board certified as a nurse practitioner, she filled several roles in cardiology, primary care, and gerontology. Throughout her journey she continuously noticed and addressed an overarching theme, all patients are not adequately addressing their mental health needs. The Covid-19 pandemic forced her to pivot and she joined a team treating patients by telehealth. Their focus was mental health and treating patients with treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, or PTSD with oral Ketamine. After almost two years of experience treating these patients, she has joined the team at Taconic Psychiatry to continue helping those who can benefit from her experience and care.

In her “downtime”, Sarah spends time with her husband, their three daughters, and their two goldendoodles. She enjoys cooking, traveling, strength training, pickleball, and looking at houses on zillow.
