Living Balanced 
on Purpose
Develop healthy relationships, have stimulating conversations, and communicate your boundaries to create healthy habits that impact you're mental health. Finding balance means disconnecting- take time to meditate or reflect, and practice mindfulness- during dinner, showers, or when talking with friends.

DMV Psychiatric Wellness uses a client-centered solution-focused approach to provide the best possible care. We tailor sessions to personally fit our clients, and encourage they actively take the reins during each session, while the provider acts mainly as a guide or a source of support. No judgments passed on your feelings or offer suggestions or solutions.

Access to mental health care is a struggle for those with serious mental illness. DMV Psychiatric Wellness was developed to offer comprehensive mental health services and coordinated medication management to support the churches, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ communities with the gap in mental health.
