Our Mental Health Provider

Our mental health provider

Hello! I’m
Dr. Sara Waterbury


My mission is to improve the lives of my patients everyday through providing consistent mental health care via evidence-based treatment modalities, in a holistic manner.

Florida native and resident of the Treasure Coast since 2001

I am a Florida native, University of Florida graduate, and a resident of the Treasure Coast since 2009; when I moved here to be closer to my grandfather, a World War II Navy Veteran, and a primary inspiration throughout my entire life. It was the role I played in the coordination of his healthcare that left such a tremendous impression on the importance of quality-of-life for all involved.

Professional Experience

My healthcare career path started as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), a Patient Care Technician (PCT) in 2009, and a Mental Health Technician (MHT) in 2011, working in private duty care as well as for Martin Memorial Health Systems and in Forensic Psychiatry as a Registered Nurse (RN) and completing training through the Psychiatric Mental Health NP program at UF (while being a new mom!). I transferred into the Case Management department with Martin Memorial and practiced primarily in their ER setting, coordinating mental health care needs (i.e., Substance Use/Recovery placements, Baker Act/Marchman Act placements), Hospice referrals and providing emotional support for patients and their families. I was blessed with the opportunity to work with Hospice as an admission and field RN; helping patients and their families during end-of-life stage.


Indian River State College for both of my Undergraduate Nursing Degrees (Associates and Bachelor’s)

University of Florida graduate, with a Doctorate in Nursing Practice with a specialty in Psychiatric Mental Health (DNP, PMHNP)
