“I am a Board certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist with over 15 years of experience and special interest in psychopharmacology. I evaluate and treat patients of all ages with symptoms ranging from mild to severe and with an emphasis on refractory (difficult to treat) cases.
“I am a board certified psychiatrist and completed my training at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. My patients may be seeking psychiatric help for the first time, others have tried a number of medications and have struggled to find the level of help they were seeking. With each patient I work carefully to evaluate which medication will be effective. As my patient your ongoing treatment will include consultation with you about the effects of any medication to ensure you get the maximum benefit to improve your quality of life. I can be reached by phone and email as needed.
“My name is Dr. Alok Rawat. I am a board certified psychiatrist with a focus on helping people with anxiety and mood disorders, serving the downtown Baltimore area, the Ellicott City/Columbia area, and the Bethesda area. I specialize in life-coaching and helping you find a better balance in your life, especially for busy professionals who want a goal-oriented approach to psychiatry. My interventions are evidence based and time limited.I practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as life-coaching and motivational techniques, as well as medication management where indicated.
“If you are struggling with anxiety, insomnia, and/or substance abuse, then I am here to help. If your mood symptoms led to alcohol and/or drug use, or vice versa, there is a solution. If you are seeking someone to help with your chronic pain with non-narcotic medications, then you found her.

If you are serious about treatment with medication and/or psychotherapy, then please contact me. I am here to help.
“Let's start your transformation and begin a new life practice. Acknowledgement and acceptance of your painful emotions are the first steps in getting control. How long do you have to struggle with these common brain signals? "I am overwhelmed and fatigued." "My brain is foggy!" "I have uncontrollable mood swings." ... Many are unaware that these emotions are often controlled by their brain and not by their personal efforts and thus they suffer alone. Mental illness is not a choice but the response to this potentially life changing condition is a personal decision.
“I am trained in child and adult psychiatry. After graduating from medical school at Tufts in 1998, I received psychiatric training at the George Washington University Hospital, and the Children's National Medical Center, both in Washington, DC. I have worked with adults, adolescents and children and have special interest and expertise in working with both children and adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. I welcome individuals of all races, ethnicities, religions and gender orientations. I am happy to coordinate treatment with a psychotherapist that may already be engaged in treating a child or adult that seeks a psychiatric consultation and/or treatment from me.
“I offer psychotherapy to patients tailored to their individual circumstances. I have an interest in marital therapy for the stresses of retirement as spouses find themselves back together after a lifetime of working apart. Frequency of sessions varies according to need from once a week to less often. A free phone interview permits prospective patients and me to assess suitability.
“I am a board certified psychotherapist/ psychiatric clinical nurse specialist with over 30 years providing individual psychotherapy to adults. I believe in a collaborative approach in which client and therapist identify stressors and explore alternative approaches to enhance coping skills and achieve emotional well being. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the foundation of my practice - however an eclectic approach is often indicated and is dependent upon the needs of the individual and the treatment goals identified at the onset of therapy
“I believe life presents us with challenges and situations where decisions have to be made regarding our healing process. Symptoms and problems can be seen not only as an opportunity for healing but for personal growth, thus the importance of a strong connection betweeen patient and therapist where both have an active and collaborative role. Conditions like ADHD, anxiety, depression and bipolar illness can be well managed and not be a sentence for failure. I consult with therapists in the area regarding the pharmachological needs of their patients. Medications can help restore a biochemical imbalance and a feeling of wellbeing.
“It has been a privilege to work with my patients and help them discover more about themselves than they had been aware of before. This has usually resulted in significant symptom reduction and improved relationships with those who are important in their lives. Freud discovered the unconscious and its power to control our lives without us being aware of it. By helping people achieve a better understanding of these impulses in themselves, they can work with them, and use them to achieve their goals rather than being caught in endless self-destructive ways.
“I specialize in the mental health needs of children, adolescents and adults. For children and adolescents, I focus on the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of mood and anxiety disorders, behavior problems, school difficulties, attention issues and autism spectrum disorders.

No PhD psychologist or social worker in the state of Maryland is allowed to prescribe medications to help such conditions as stress, depression, anxiety, Bipolar, OCD, ADHD, and multiple other conditions which even your Internist or OB/Gyn are not adequately trained to diagnose and treat. I sometimes will do psychotherapy and medication management myself or alternatively I am happy to work collaberatively with a psychotherapist you may already have.

I work with my patients using eclectic approaches, including Hypnosis, Gestalt, Psychodynamic and Cognitive techniques, and I have been in practice for over 36 years. I am Board Certified in Psychiatry as well as Child Psychiatry. I work using Play Therapy with children. I have had extensive training and experience in Experiential Therapies (Gestalt and Ego-State Therapy), and Hypnosis and find these approaches helpful for my patients.
