Get To Know Us
Who We Are
How We Care
It is our core belief that a healthy mind is the foundation of whole health. We also believe that you are not defined by your diagnosis. Where others see a mental health patient, we see a real person. We envision a world where seeking care for the mind is as acceptable as seeking care for the body.
Choosing YOUniq Health to assist you on your journey to wellness means working with a team that truly cares about your success and committed to helping you achieve your health goals. We do not rush you in and out; our providers spend adequate amount of time with you. They respect your feelings and listen to you so you feel comfortable trusting them with your care.
What We Offer
We open our doors, Monday to Friday, at 9 AM and close for the day at 7 PM. Our extended hours allow you the flexibility to find a suitable time for your appointments. We are closed Saturday and Sunday.
Our Holiday Closings
We observe the following major holidays — New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
Our focus is on restoring individuals of all ages — children, adolescents, adults, the elderly — and their families to whole health through humanized behavioral, psychiatric and mental health care. Our providers prescribe medications very responsibly, combined with brief therapy, for a wide range of conditions that affect the mind including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, schizophrenia, PTSD, autism, OCD, addiction and substance use, eating disorder, and dementia as well as women-related issues such as premenstrual dysphoric disorder, perinatal depression, and post-partum depression.
When it comes to the use of medications, our providers have very good understanding of their benefits, risks and safety issues and they prescribe responsibly. Your medications are reviewed regularly for continued need, appropriate dosage, and side effects. Adjustments to your treatment are also made as needed, including, but not limited to, dosage increase or reduction and medication discontinuation when no longer needed. As for addictive medications, our providers only prescribe them with extreme caution.
Our Payment Options
We accept payment from insurance as well as self payment from our patients and you can pay with major credit cards.
Our Urgent Care Process
If you need to be seen on an urgent basis, please call us during our open hours so we can assist you with expedited scheduling. We do not provide emergency services. In the event of an emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Department (ED).
Our approach is simple — we work in partnership with you and your family. And when necessary, we coordinate with other healthcare providers involved in other aspects of your care. Your cooperation makes it possible for us to figure out your problem(s) and come up with an individualized and unique treatment plan for you.
Get In Touch
Need care for yourself or a loved one?
Getting care on time for mental health problems improves the odds of recovery. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you notice any of these warning signs in you or your loved one — having little to no energy; withdrawing from people and social activities; having crying spells; feeling helpless and hopeless; sleeping more or less than usual; exhibiting mood swings; eating too little or too much; getting angry or irritable; worrying too much; having nightmares; being hypervigilant; getting scared a lot; having frequent disturbing memories of past events; having decreased attention, concentration, and focus; being unusually confused or forgetful; believing things that are not true; hearing voices or seeing things that are not real; or other unusual symptoms.
Doing a self check and/or paying close attention to changes in a loved one is a major step in determining the need to seek help. Remember that just like any physical health problems — cancer, diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, pneumonia, and so on, it is okay to seek help for psychiatric and mental health problems.

Ways to reach us

Beginning her career as a baccalaureate prepared and licensed nurse, Dr. Amarachi became an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) after receiving the required graduate nursing education. She earned her Bachelor of Nursing Science degree from Babcock University, a Master of Science in Nursing (Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner specialty track) degree from the University of Cincinnati, a Post-Master’s Family Nurse Practitioner Certificate from St. Joseph’s College, Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree from Chatham University, and a Post-Doctoral Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Certificate from Brandman University.
Dr. Amarachi holds three board certifications as a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-C) from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP), and Women's Health Care Nurse Practitioner (WHNP-BC) from the National Certification Corporation (NCC). Her professional experience spans many years of clinical practice in diverse settings that involves caring for various patient populations. She is also helping prepare future advanced practice nurses by teaching graduate level courses and precepting students on clinical rotations.
With a commitment to expanding access to health care for all, Dr. Amarachi saw the need and started a Women’s Clinic at the People's City Mission Free Medical Clinic in January 2015 to care for the homeless and uninsured. Currently, YOUniq Health, under her clinical direction, is partnering with the Good Neighbor Community Center to offer free mental health care to those they serve within the Lincoln community who are unable to pay for their care. She strongly believes that technology has a huge role to play in providing more access to healthcare services to patients who live in underserved areas; especially those dealing with mental health issues.
Dr. Amarachi is married, has a son and two daughters, and enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She loves baking and cooking. She also loves being in nature, dancing, listening to music, singing, traveling, and watching movies.
