James Park, PMHNP-BC

In life, we all experiences times of emotional pain. Sometimes, this leads to depression, anxiety, and other symptoms that can impact your relationships, work, and overall well-being. I work collaboratively with each person to help relieve unnecessary suffering and nurture your innate capacities.

The biological factors of health are important considerations for both your physical and emotional well being. Medications may be an important tool as part of a holistic treatment plan. I strive to stay informed of current research developments in psychiatry, psychotherapy, and other interdisciplinary fields.

Psychotherapy can be an integral part of a holistic treat plan. Many find psychotherapy a worthwhile investment that fosters healing, resilience, and growth, long after treatment has completed. I am informed by psychodynamic, emotionally-focused, and experiential foundations. I tailor my therapy to each individual’s needs to provide a nurturing, but active therapeutic relationship. I am happy to collaborate with your current therapist as well.

Areas of clinical expertise: Mood disorders (major depressive disorder, bipolar spectrum disorders), anxiety & panic disorders, OCD, Trauma, & childhood onset ADHD. 

In addition to private practice, James has experience in the inpatient and emergency psychiatry, community mental-health, and critical-care nursing. His clinical experiences include working with the University of Maryland Medical Center, community mental health clinics, CHOP, and Sheppard Pratt Hospital. 

James also enjoys clinical teaching and has provided undergraduate clinical instruction at the University of Pennsylvania and graduate clinical preceptorship with area universities.
