Integrative Psychiatrist in the Washington, DC Area


Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner




purposefully causing change by taking action;

creating or controlling a situation

Improving your mental health is a process that involves the whole body.

Traditional psychiatry is surface level. Integrative psychiatry is more than medication and goes beneath the surface to reduce symptoms, not just cover them up with a pill.  Integrative psychiatry is holistic and encourages working from the inside out.

"Thanks for pushing me in the right direction.  I have liked your approach, feels like it digs deep, and casts a wide net. Definitely very different from my last psychiatrist. It is refreshing to see someone try things from a holistic perspective."

Self-improvement is a journey,
not a destination. 

Are you a psychiatrist?

I am a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner!  My role is similar to that of a psychiatrist. Like psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners can prescribe medication (including controlled substances), provide therapy and coaching, conduct evaluations, and more.

How are you different from a psychiatrist?

In many ways my role very similar to that of a psychiatrist.  Psychiatric nurse practitioners are nurses first, that then go on to receive additional education and training .  As nurses, our approach to care tends to be more holistic. We have the bedside experience that helps us connect with patients as people!

Are you board-certified in psychiatry?

Yes! Just like a psychiatrist, I am board-certified in psychiatry.  My certification is through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).  I am certified to treat psychiatric patients across the lifespan.
