5 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hello, I'm Rose! I’m currently accepting new patients! I am board-certified and licensed in Virginia and Washington DC. Having worked in a psychiatric hospital, partial hospitalization program (PHP) and out patient office; I have extensive experience working with adults, children and adolescents to manage depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, PTSD, autism spectrum and OCD. Prior to graduating as a nurse practitioner, I had 12 years nursing experience working in neurology, psychiatry, hospice and pain management. I facilitate integrated holistic wellness by incorporating psychotropic medication, psychotherapy, lifestyle modification, supplements and genetic testing. Treatment may include: medication (including prescriptions and supplements), diagnostic tests and lab work, coaching, mindfulness recommendations, nutrition suggestions, brief therapy, "homework,” and referral to specialists.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

You can expect me to listen with compassion and to provide trauma-informed, gender affirming care. Appointments are delivered via HIPAA secure telehealth and include a comprehensive history, assessment, and discussion about diagnoses and personalized treatment plans. New patient appointments typically last 60 minutes with 30 minutes follow ups, including placing orders and scheduling next visit. Please note: **I do not prescribe stimulants without a full work up for ADHD. **Benzodiazepines are only prescribed for medical necessity. If you are dependent on benzodiazepines, then my goal will be to taper the dose and transition you to a safer medication to manage anxiety.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My therapeutic philosophy is centered on individually-tailored care, collaboration with clients’ primary care providers, therapists, psychologists and college counselors. Through continuous education and highlighting clients' strengths, I enjoy working with clients to employ the most current treatment interventions. Since every client is unique, so are treatment plans. I will help you explore the underlying causes of symptoms and use a combination of medication and other treatment tools to address symptoms, such as behavioral change, brief therapy, cognitive reframing, coping skill development, guided relaxation, motivational interviewing, rating and screening tools, and more.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I am focused on caring for adults with: Depression Anxiety ADHD OCD Bipolar disorder Autism spectrum Emotional Disturbance Trauma and PTSD Insomnia Grief
