Washington, District of Columbia 20037
“As a psychiatrist, I see my profession as helping people by understanding what they are suffering from (diagnosis) and finding the most appropriate treatment, through psychotherapy and/or medication management. My experience ranges from severe mental illness to traumatic experiences that affect ability to function, to troubles of everyday living such as interpersonal difficulties, grief, divorce and infertility/adoption issues. I provide long-term therapy for self-exploration, emotional development, and changing complex personality patterns that can make everyday life difficult or therapy of shorter duration focused on specific problems. The general modality of therapy is psychodynamic.

Stephen M Weissman, Psychiatrist  in Washington
“Overwhelmed? Frustrated with people in your life? Trouble at school, work or home? Change can happen. I see adolescents, adults and couples. I'm direct, open, collaborative. My style is eclectic, practical and problem-solving. I prescribe anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications when indicated. Psychotherapy is a two-way street. It begins with a consultation, when together we clarify what's troubling you. During that first encounter, we road-test our compatibility as communicators and collaborators. In psycho-therapy, "one size" does not fit all. You should meet more than one clinician before deciding whom to work with.

Sharon L Bernier, Psychiatric Nurse  in Washington
“I have an adult practice for persons over the age of 18. If you are seeking therapy, you are interested in improving your life in the areas of relationships, communications and any other areas causing emotional discomfort or pain such as: work, marital or couple issues, parenting differences, losses, life phase adaptations, body image and decision making. Effectiveness of therapy depends on your active participation. It requires time, effort and regularity. Therapy involves evaluating your thoughts and behaviors, identifying stresses and working to modify both. The therapy relationship is a collaborative effort with strict confidentiality and respect for the client.

Jessica Brown, Psychiatrist  in Washington
“My approach is to work in collaboration with a person in order to learn how to step back and explore one’s thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental way. I have seen how beneficial it can be for a person to become less critical of oneself. Most people think this kind of work on themselves is a major investment in their quality of life. When a person has the opportunity to explore internal conflicts, it can give them greater freedom to be more creative and enjoy life and relationships.

Jyotika Devi Vazirani, Psychiatric Nurse  in Washington
“We often come into our personal behaviors, thoughts, & feelings because they have helped us survive our own anxieties. As adults, often habitual patterns of behavior inhibit us from growing into the effective human beings we expect ourselves to become. Freedom, in its broadest sense, can be limited, depending on our own thought patterns, emotions, and our personal responses/reactions to our emotions. Together, we can look at patterns of behavior, private thoughts and feelings with empathy and without judgment. We can explore how freedom of thought and emotional reactivity can help you achieve your personal goals of actualization.

I feel comfortable integrating a broad range of tools including prescribing medication if needed. I am an experienced, caring clinician who enjoys working with people who are facing a variety of challenges.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Washington is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Washington Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Washington specialize in age groups (so check for Washington child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Washington). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurses in Washington, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Washington Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior. Importantly, they are trained to administer psychiatric medication (or 'psychiatric meds') and, in very limited ways, to prescribe meds.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on meds so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
