Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in Seattle

Brian Noonan, ARNP

I am a board-certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner with Prescriptive Authority.  I have over 14 years of experience providing mental health services, including medication management and mindfulness meditation.

Although I prescribe psychiatric medications such as antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, mood stabilizers, and ADHD medications, it does not mean that I believe medications will help everyone or solve all problems.

After your initial evaluation, I will provide you with reliable information about whether a medication is likely to help, its potential risks, and the alternative treatments. I may strongly recommend a medication, suggest it as a possible option, or conclude that medication is not likely to help you at all.

We will discuss your lifestyle, such as diet, exercise, alcohol/substance use, and stress-management strategies.  My non-medication speciality is mindfulness meditation, so if you’re interested in starting a regular practice or would like more information about it, please let me know.
