Hello! I’m Dr. Ify Nwangwu

Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

My approach is grounded in the theory of self-determination, with strong influences on psychiatric disorders, such as mood disorders, anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, ADHD, and more.

I am nationally board certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and licensed to practice independently as a PMHNP in Maryland and Washington, DC. This licensure includes prescriptive authority.

I believe in taking a holistic, integrative, patient-centered approach to psychiatry treating the mind, body, and spirit at DIVINE Mental Health Services in Washington, DC, and Maryland. I utilize medication with psychotherapy to treat depression, anxiety, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) along with other common mental health conditions and life issues.

DIVINE Mental Health service’s mission is to provide every patient with the best quality care while empowering our patients to successfully manage their careers, relationships, family life, and faith by staying in control of their mental health.

Ify has worked in the nursing field for more than 35 years with most of her nursing experience being in the mental health care field.  She has worked in both the inpatient and the outpatient setting with clients needing crisis stabilization and clients that are doing well and maintaining continued outpatient care. 

“I have gained a lot of confidence and comfort working with individuals of all ages with varying mental health care needs.” ~Dr. Ify
