About the founder

Liza Cutout_edited.png

Founded by Eliza Brink, a board-certified PMHNP (Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner), Spruce was created to help providers' private practices thrive. Eliza has been practicing in Washington State since 2013 and has been a faculty member at the University of Washington since 2012. She currently teaches in the undergraduate Nursing and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner programs while also running a successful private practice.


Eliza's experience in both practice and teaching has highlighted the significant gap in support for providers in private practice, leading her to establish Spruce.


We believe that people learn and grow best in an environment of genuine compassion and support.
