Ryan Sheridan, NP

Optimizing and improving your mental health is a holistic 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.

 Frequently Asked Questions

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.  While I have a doctorate in nursing and can use the title doctor, I am not a physician or MD. 

In many ways my role is 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 a mental health specialist?

Psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners are specialists in all things related to mental health.  We can prescribe medication, perform therapy, order tests, complete assessments and evaluations, and partner with you to help you improve your mental health.

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.
