"Kathryn is caring and knowledgeable. She took her time to really understand what is going on and explain the treatment. So glad I found her!"
Boise, ID - April 04, 2017
As a Physician Assistant with over twelve years experience in psychiatry, I have worked with countless individuals to improve their mental wellbeing. Through those experiences, I have developed not only a great appreciation for the depth and complexity within each individual, but also a practice approach that is both COMPASSIONATE and COMPREHENSIVE.
My passion is partnering with individuals to make meaningful and lasting change, and my hope is that by improving your mental wellbeing you are able to THRIVE as a parent, partner, and person.
Kathryn (Harris) Werner, PA-C is a Certified Physician Assistant with a Certification of Added Qualifications (CAQ) in Psychiatry. She studied Health Promotion at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas and then in 2007, earned a Masters of Physician Assistant Studies from Idaho State University in Pocatello.
After seven years of psychiatry practice, she was awarded a Certificate of Added Qualification in Psychiatry from the National Commission on Certification of PAs which recognized her specialty experience, skills, and knowledge in the area of psychiatry.
Over her twelve years in medicine, Kathryn has practiced psychiatry at a wide variety of settings throughout the Treasure Valley as well as in Alabama. She has also served as a clinical preceptor for students at Idaho State University, a clinical supervisor for numerous psychosocial rehabilitation workers, and a speaker at several conferences.
This diverse set of experiences, with other clinicians as well as with patients, has allowed Kathryn to develop a rich practice style that combines thorough investigation, expert medical management, and practical counseling.

In addition to being a dedicated clinician, Kathryn has a vast range of life experiences that connect her to her patients.
She has a love of exploration that has taken her sailing both coasts, motorcycle camping across the country, and deep into literature. Now, as a wife and a mother of two small children, she enjoys exploring life at a slower pace in the form of backyard bird watching, farmers market strolls, and library trips.
These experiences with exploration and learning are invaluable when working with patients to understand their mental health on a deeper level.
