Hello! I am a San Antonio native. I have a passion for serving our LGBTQIA community here in San Antonio, including providing assistance with gender confirmation, whether it be letters or hormone replacement. I founded Cantera Psychiatry to be able to see you in a safe space environment, where I can spend more time with you, and treat you as a whole person. Though some people just wish for medications, I find that most also need a caring advocate. My goal is to be that person for you. I trained at Baylor College of Medicine for medical school, then I trained at the University of South Florida for residency. I published a couple papers along the way, became board certified, and taught and mentored quite a few students. In addition to LGBTQIA services, we provide cutting-edge psychiatric interventions like transcranial magnetic stimulation and spravato (esketamine) treatment. For fun, I like to crochet, cook, and keep up with the latest sci-fi now, though I am a former avid skydiver.

Hello. My name is Dennis Sneed. I am a board certified psychiatric/mental health nurse practitioner. I have 10 years of experience promoting mental wellness for individuals struggling with various forms of depression, anxiety and psychosis. Prior to joining Cantera Psychiatry in November 2019, I worked at the Michael E DeBakey VA Medical Center, and more recently for an organization providing telemedicine services. Deciding to engage in mental health treatment is a critical step to take towards achieving both physical and emotional wellness; it is a decision I do not take lightly. Education serves as the foundation of my practice and I approach every person I see as an unique, holistic individual. I go to great lengths empowering individuals to make autonomous, informed decisions, whether that decision ultimately includes a medication or not. When not helping individuals achieve a better version of themselves I enjoy spending time with my family and exercising (not cardio; not so much a fan). I look forward to meeting you and walking with you on your journey to recovery.
Jennifer Hill, PMHNP
I am originally from Austin but have lived in San Antonio for over a decade. I attended Texas Lutheran University where I received an undergraduate degree in biology and also had brief career in college basketball. I completed my BSN and MSN at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. I have two children and three dogs. I have practiced under the supervision of Dr. Ansbro since 2016 and excited to continue my career for many years with Cantera Psychiatry. I employ evidence based practice unified with clinical experience, education, and patient observation to provide the best treatment possible for each patient. I love what I do and believe every patient deserves to be treated with kindness and respect.
