Washington DC Integrative Psychiatry - Ryan Sheridan Nurse Practitioner

Take control of your wellness,

improve your relationships,
optimize your life..

I help individuals enhance their mental health.  My approach is based on the premise that nutrition, physical activity, and how we recover are foundational to our well-being.  We will optimize your life  with thoughtful prescriptions, psychotherapy, nutritional and supplement counseling, and prescriptive exercise .

...You can with my Proactive Approach℠   

Optimizing and improving your mental health is a process that involves the whole body.

Reject the traditional. Integrative psychiatry is more than medication and seeks to upend the status quo, not just solve the problem up with a pill. Integrative psychiatry is holistic and demands a reevaluation of our approach to wellness and health.

Patient Review

"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."

As your psychiatric provider I will:

Be Accessible

You will have a multiple direct means to contact me - no exchanges or reception.  Scheduling, account details, and billing will all be at your fingertips.

Empower You

You are the driver of your care.  I'll share my knowledge - ultimately we will make the decisions together

based on your goals.

Build a Relationship

Remember, you will not just be be a number.  I am going to work to know you as a person - to me you will never be a condition or a diagnosis.  

My Promise:
I believe in my approach so strongly that I guarantee you will see results.*

Develop the habit of self-improvement. Become your best.

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, provide therapy and coaching, conduct evaluations, and more.  To be clear, just as a psychiatrist for ADHD may prescribe controlled substances, so can I.  

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.

Improvement can start today. 

At Proactive Psychiatry®, my patient philosophy revolves around a holistic approach, addressing the entirety of an individual – mind, body, and spirit.  I firmly believe that employing a thoughtful combination of psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and alternative treatments, including meditation, physical activity, yoga, and more, can be transformative changes in the lives of individuals grappling with various mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, body image struggles, burnout, and other mental health challenges and life issues.

As an psychiatric nurse practitioner-owned online psychiatry practice, I am proud to serve all parts of Washington DC, including Dupont Circle, Navy YardDowntown Washington DC, Shaw, Logan Circle, Georgetown, Woodley Park, Friendship Heights, Near Me in Washington DC, Glover Park, Palisades, Tenleytown, Cleveland Park, Foxhall, 14th Street DC, Adams Morgan, and more. 


Additionally, I am licensed to and proud to serve patients in Maryland (including Bethesda and Montgomery County).
