Anya Snyder, MSN, PMHNP-BC
Anya Snyder, completed her Bachelor of Arts at The Evergreen State College, where she majored in women’s studies and creative writing.

After completing her training as a labor and postpartum doula and childbirth educator at the Seattle Midwifery School, Anya served as a doula and CBE at the Teen Pregnancy and Parenting Clinic in Seattle, WA. Her experiences here lead her to seek additional training in trauma and childbirth.
Anya received her Masters of Science in Nursing from Vanderbilt University in 2012. She is board certified as a Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. During her time at Vanderbilt, she trained at The Vanderbilt Women’s Mental Health Clinic and in a private infertility counseling practice.
