Hello, I'm Mariam Bouanane-Smith, a Board-Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner deeply committed to providing empathetic, person-centered care. My expertise lies in guiding individuals from all walks of life as they navigate complex mental health challenges, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, PTSD, and beyond.
With nearly a decade's worth of experience across diverse healthcare environments—from outpatient clinics and hospitals to private practices—I've had the privilege of supporting patients of all ages.
I firmly believe in a custom-tailored approach to treatment that addresses your unique needs, values, and preferences. I understand that mental health is as individual as the person experiencing it, and there's no one-size-fits-all solution. My primary goal is to collaborate with you, developing a bespoke treatment plan that truly resonates with your personal experiences and aspirations.
In our warm and welcoming space, we'll embark on a journey of introspection, exploring your thoughts and emotions, and striving towards identifying what truly helps you feel your best.
My Services (we offer both virtual and in-person visits):
Our treatment journey begins with comprehensive diagnostic evaluations. Through in-depth assessments and discussions, I strive to understand your unique concerns, background, and challenges. This foundation allows me to make precise diagnoses and develop a focused treatment strategy.
In cases where medication is warranted, I offer expert medication management services. I meticulously review your medical history and symptoms, prescribing and monitoring necessary medications to enhance your mental health.
We'll use the power of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to address negative thought patterns and behaviors. Our empathetic conversations during talk therapy sessions will delve into your thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
Mindfulness practices are integrated into our sessions to foster self-awareness, stress reduction, and improved emotional regulation. These techniques can be potent tools in managing a variety of mental health concerns.
I want to remind you that you're not alone in your struggles—reaching out for help is a brave step towards a healthier, happier life. I am here to stand beside you at every stage of your journey, providing the support you need to discover what helps you feel your best.
