Adirondack Health Welcomes New Behavioral Health Provider
SARANAC LAKE – Positive mental health is important for achieving and maintaining good physical health. Therefore, Adirondack Health is expanding behavioral health services with the addition of Diane Cuff-Carney, a Board Certified Adult Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and member of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association.
Diane Carney graduated from New York University’s Post-Graduate Nurse Practitioner Program in 2006 as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. She received her B.S. in Nursing from Wagner College, Staten Island, N.Y. and her M.A. in Psychiatric Nursing from NYU, N.Y. She also completed postgraduate training in Human Sexuality and Family Systems Therapy.
Most recently, Carney worked as a full-time Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner at Sunset Terrace Family Health Center & Healthy Connections Psychiatric Trauma Treatment Center at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. She previously served as Director of St. Vincent’s Medical Center’s Behavioral Health Homecare Program in Brooklyn and Staten Island and has run her own private practices in Brooklyn and Long Lake, N.Y.
In addition to her busy clinical practice, Carney has been published in a number of Psychiatric publications and has presented at various conferences and workshops. She has a special interest in family therapy, ranging from marital conflict to treating troubled adolescents.
Diane and her husband have enjoyed vacationing in the Adirondacks since the 1980’s. In 2004, the couple built a house on Long Lake where they enjoy all the outdoors has to offer: fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking and camping. In July of 2015 they decided to leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and make a permanent move to the region.
Diane is now a member of the Friends of the Long Lake Library Board and enjoys their monthly book group discussions. She is an avid swimmer and shares her home with her husband and their two cats, Shimmer and Sahara.
Carney will be available by appointment at the Tupper Lake Health Center on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. To schedule an appointment, call the Tupper Lake Health Center at 518-359-7000.
