My name is Derek Walcker, and I am a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) who resides near Howard County, and provides comprehensive, evidence based behavioral healthcare to all the residents of my home state, Maryland. Via telehealth, I am presently focusing on treating adults of all ages (18-senior) who are afflicted with any behavioral health condition (stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD, Bipolar, Insomnia, etc.) and I use a combination of both medication and psychotherapy to provide speedy remission of symptoms, while creating a long-term psychotherapeutic treatment plan to provide sustained relief.
My long tenure engaging with a breadth of patients from all ages, locations, and backgrounds has afforded me the demeanor to quickly establish a reciprocal and trusting rapport with my patients and their families.
This is fostered by creating an inviting area of: comfort, dignity, encouragement, validation, absence of bias or shame, and developing the confidence within the patient to effect change. Often, my patients say I am empathetic but direct, and have a serious but tongue-in-cheek sense of humor.
