What does integrative psychiatry mean?

It all begins with you.

Where traditional psychiatry alone is bland, integrative and functional psychiatry is rich and colorful.  It is a powerful combination of the best practices that science has to offer. 

The exact formula we'll create together will depend on what makes you unique, including your genetics, history, lifestyle, and everything in between.  

 

With an integrative approach, we do not use a one-size-fits-all prescription or treatment plan.

We’ll explore root causes.  Together we can come up with short-term and long-term solutions.  After reviewing all available options, together we'll select a path based on what is important to you.

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 a psychiatric nurse practitioner-owned online psychiatry practice, I am proud to offer the the best psychiatric care in Washington, DC and to serve all parts of Washington DC, including Dupont Circle, Navy Yard, Downtown Washington DC, Shaw, Logan Circle, Georgetown, Woodley Park, Friendship Heights, Adams Morgan, and more.
