I treat patients who are experiencing distressing symptoms due to problems with their mood, difficulty thinking, poor concentration and difficulty focusing, or may be having problems in their personal relationships or occupational functioning. People who initially are less concerned with how a problem arose than with the current factors sustaining the problem and what is preventing them from trying to change it. People who want to learn coping techniques and problem-solving skills that can help them regain a sense of control in their life. Later in treatment, people may want to identify and understand the behavior, emotions, and ideas that contribute to their problems.

I diagnose and treat adults and adolescents with all psychiatric illnesses. However, I don’t get hung up on labels and diagnoses. My patients describe me as authentic because I treat each person as an individual with their own specific symptoms and needs. I am committed to providing a safe space for LGBTQIA+ patients. I am a Board-Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) and have worked in psychiatry for over six years. I earned my BSN and MSN from The George Washington University. While I primarily do medication management, I am also trained in DBT and existential therapy.

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.

Please feel free to schedule a 15-minute complimentary call to see if I would be a good fit for you (current wait-time: NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS). I treat each patient within a holistic frame that includes a review of the biological, psychological, and lifestyle factors that brought them to me: we work together to make a treatment plan. I ask my patients teach me about their mood experiences/symptoms and to share their personal goals. My practice style is Integrative: I combine Osteopathic, Yoga, and Nutrition principles in my work and have specific expertise in psychopharmacology. See below for qualifications/credentials.

Larry Drell, MD: "The hardest step is often the first step. There is help available for the suffering you are feeling. As an MD psychiatrist who is a solution based psychotherapist. I combine "talk therapy" with medication (if needed) to help you get stabilized and focused quickly. I help people solve problems now when they feel overwhelmed, trapped and hopeless.
