Alisa DaCosta Rodrigues
My name is Alisa DaCosta Rodrigues. I am board certified Family Nurse Practitioner with specialty in psychiatry. I completed my graduate degree at Catholic University of America. I am skilled in assessing and treating a variety of mental health disorders including anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, Bipolar disorder, ADHD, and so forth. I work with the adolescent, adult, and geriatric population. I bring with me a unique set of work experiences that have fostered my passion for helping those most in need of mental health treatment.
I use a holistic approach and recognize that mental health conditions are biological, physiological, and spiritual conditions, not just brain-based diseases. There are many benefits of prescription medications in psychiatry,but it is only part of the solution. My comprehensive approach along with medication management supports lasting wellness and helps my patients to achieve optimal levels of health.
My hobbies outside of work are biking, hiking, and spending time with my family.
