About

Dr. McGowan is a board-certified adult psychiatrist with over 14 years of experience during which he has primarily treated active duty US Navy sailors, their family members, and military retirees in the outpatient setting. Dr. McGowan’s practice focuses on medication management in addition to supportive and cognitive-behavioral therapy in 30-minute follow-up visits. He is a strong advocate of multiple treatment modalities and, in certain situations, may suggest that therapy and/or regular physical exercise be included in your treatment plan in order to provide the best outcome.
Dr. McGowan received his B.S. in Physics from United States Naval Academy. After serving as an Intelligence Officer in the Navy for eight years, he transitioned to medicine and earned his medical degree from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, MD.
In addition to the full spectrum of mood and anxiety disorders, Dr. McGowan has treated a very large number of patients with PTSD stemming from combat, natural disasters, and sexual trauma. He believes that, like his service to the country, working alongside others in their journey to better mental health is an incredible privilege.
