Kavita Shanbhag
Self Pay Rate: $99

Kavita Shanbhag, LCPC

Philosophy of Care

Kavita Shanbhag is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who specializes in helping clients with anxiety, grief, stress, depression, relationship issues, adjustment disorders, and abuse. She has worked with clients of all ages and guided adult clients in creating progress through a combination of person-centered and solution-focused approaches. The person-centered framework allows clients to gain self-awareness and self-acceptance in a non-judgemental environment, while the solution-focused approach is future-oriented, which helps clients realize their potential through goal setting and measuring progress.

In working with children, Kavita implemented elements of directive play therapy, client-centered play therapy, and expressive therapies (i.e. through the use of drama, art, music), which are the most natural communication modes for children and promote healing with the inclusion of familial support. She has used these approaches in treating grief and loss, anxiety,  attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, sexual abuse, physical abuse, depression, anger management, and children of alcoholics (COA).

"Are you thinking of writing the next chapter of your life? You may feel as if you are carrying the weight of the world every day, facing great difficulty letting go of those burdens, and feeling as if you are spinning your wheels," says Kavita. "It may be difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel due to common issues such as feelings of inadequacy due to unrealistic societal expectations, difficulty coping with traumatic event(s), or feeling unfit as a parent. I believe in an individual’s capacity to create change beyond their own belief about their potential. You also deserve to witness your ability to change whether you are seeking therapy for yourself or for your child."

Taking the initial steps in finding the right therapist may leave you feeling uneasy and apprehensive. Kavita's main goal is for you to feel comfortable with her so we can work as a team to address any challenges that you are experiencing and establish positive changes in writing the next chapter of your life. She looks forward to meeting you!

Nadine Kakanou, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

A psychiatry nurse practitioner is tasked with evaluating a patient’s mental health status by assessing their relevant medical background, conducting comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, and identifying potential issues that might negatively impact a patient's mental health. The primary concern of individuals suffering from mental health problems is accessing mental health care professionals equipped with the knowledge and skills to provide comprehensive care and offer preventive strategies. Although psychiatry nurse practitioners receive intense training to meet mental health patients' needs, their roles are poorly understood because regulatory barriers have limited the entire scope of the practice. Therefore, this paper will explore their philosophy of Care.

Due to the complexity of human beings in understanding their lives and illness experience, PNP requires the ability to access situations from different perspectives, not only through a psychological lens but also from a biological and development view, while recognizing the perspective of stakeholder affected. Besides, Mental health disorder affects the ability to communicate experiences, and its symptoms may not conform to conventional diagnostic criteria. Therefore, PNP needs to have a high tolerance of uncertainties and a willingness to frequently re-evaluate assessments upon discovering new information.

In addition to diagnosing and treating disease, PNP natures resilience, and growth capacity because of psychiatry disorder on patients' growth and development abilities. The existing healthcare system may fail to address the complexity of problems suffered by patients completely. Consequently, PNP needs to effectively advocate for patients to acquire all the services needed to meet their mental health needs. They also need to push for the development of more effective services.

In conclusion, psychiatry nurse practitioners are well prepared and equipped to provide independent and effective psychiatric care and treatment to effectively meet the needs of mental health patients.

Marie Delices, LCSW-C

I love helping my clients identify where they are feeling stuck and learn what their triggers are so they can feel more in control of their lives. I encourage them to define for themselves what brought them to therapy, what they want from it, and then how it helped them change over the course of time. It is a unique relationship and support, offering perspectives that are not otherwise available. I emphasize that it takes courage, not weakness, to face difficult issues.

I have a client-centered, strength based approach, and use tools from a range of
therapy models. I’m committed   to build the therapeutic relationship with all my clients. I believe that people have many answers within themselves which can be accessed more quickly by working with a therapist.

As a therapist I believe that true change is possible and each person has the ability to create more space for peace and joy in their life. Through our work together, I can help you elicit your own strengths to help you change unhealthy behaviors; such as substance abuse, anxiety and depression.

Eric Yenchi, NP

My name is Eric Kowshoh Yenchi, I was born in Cameroon central Africa, I grew up in a small village in the North West region of Cameroon known as Babungo. Growing up in Cameroon, life was very tough, especially when it came to health care .There was just 1 health center in my village which was staffed with 1 nurse and a medical doctor who visited once every two months. This meant people who were very sick and could not wait till the arrival of the medical doctor had to drive for about 5 hours to the closest hospital in the town of Kumbo to get health care. This meant that many people who made the journey died due to bad roads, and sometimes the long waits that it took to see a medical doctor at the hospital.

The poor state of the health sector in my native country cost the lives of many of my family members, resulting in my resolve to become a medical professional so I could one day change the situation and help my community. With this in mind when I arrived the United States in 2006, I decided to study nursing. After graduating with my BSN in 2010, I decided to start my nursing career in a long term care facility taking care of geriatric patients with various illnesses confined to a nursing home. In January 2011, I visited my native country Cameroon for the first time, volunteered at the only clinic that was in my village. This time around they had more staff (4 nurses, and 1 medical doctor), which made my experience less tedious than I had anticipated. However, during this visit, I noticed that many of the people that were coming into the clinic with a mental illness were being turned away to traditional healers as the clinic did not have any experience dealing with mental illness.

With my observation, I decided to do a little research about mental health in Cameroon .What I found was not only shocking but was also very scary. I found out there were only two government hospitals in the country providing mental health services to 22 million people. Cameroon has 0.03 psychiatrists per 100, 000 of the population, and 0.2 psychiatric nurses per 100,000 of the population (psychology in Africa, 2013).Initiatives by private organizations in recent years have seen the creation of Mental Health hospital in Kumbo and BIMEHC, a mental health clinic in my village of Babungo.

With the acute shortage of these facilities and personnel, my focus changed. I realized there was not only a need for personnel but leadership to transform the mental health sector and sensitize the population about mental illness, as many attribute mental illness to witchcraft and spiritual curses. With this in mind, in 2011 I became a psychiatric nurse, enrolled and earned an MSN in Nursing Leadership in 2013.In 2015 I went to Cameroon, this time around I volunteered at Babungo Integrated Mental Health Care (BIMEHC) as a psychiatric nurse. During this service the main problem was the lack of a qualified practitioner for mental health. There was 1 psychiatrist coming from the capital every 6 months to meet with patients and prescribe medications for them. This acute shortage of mental health practitioners, has led me to believe that I can make a difference in the lives of those suffering from a mental illness by becoming a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.

Since becoming a psychiatric nurse , I have had various positions in the Mental health filed , from Charge nurse to , supervisor , and to Director of various mental health clinics in the Washington DC area .In November 2019  I passed my Boards to become a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner  and I am loving every minute of it .My short term goal is to continue providing services to those in need in and around my community , while my long term goal will be to someday own my own practice.
