Dr. Trevor Brown
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
I am a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner focused on providing collaborative, holistic, and goal-oriented care. I have worked in mental health for the last 10 years at Harborview Medical Center and Fairfax Behavioral Health.
My approach to treatment emphasizes improving self-esteem, enhancing meaning, and reducing suffering. I have an in-depth knowledge of psychiatric medications and their ability to increase energy, reduce symptoms, and improve daily functioning. However, medications are only one aspect of treatment. My approach also focuses on improving sleep, enhancing nutrition, and promoting physical fitness. I am trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing, which I use to address issues with relationships, anxiety, and life transitions. I look forward to working together soon.
Areas of focus: ADHD, adjustment disorders, anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, grief, OCD, PTSD, self-esteem and thought disorders. I work with clients 14 and up.
