Dr. Elizabeth Ssemanda

Adult and Adolescent Psychiatrist

As a board-certified psychiatrist, I believe in providing a safe, supportive, and empowering environment where you feel heard, and your needs are met. I work with adolescents and adults struggling with depression/bipolar disorder, anxiety, OCD, trauma, ADHD, adjustment disorders, insomnia, women’s issues, and relationship conflict. For your convenience, I offer in-person and video conferencing appointments on a secure platform.

Understanding that many factors affect mental health, I take a holistic approach where medication is an option but NOT the only option. I have received extensive training in medication management, therapy (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy/Interpersonal Therapy), and behavioral strategies for self-care and wellness. I aim to provide treatment that gets to the root of your problem and helps you to thrive.
