Professional statement

Michelle Moynihan is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner who sees clients in-person at her Providence, RI practice or remotely (for clients living in Rhode Island or Massachusetts). Michelle specializes in providing medication management for anxiety, depression, trauma, and pregnancy and postpartum related concerns. These include postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD, postpartum depression, and stable postpartum psychosis.

Michelle's varied expertise and experience as a Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner inform her current practice. She also has experience working with LGBTQ+ and low income clients at Citizens for Citizens family planning, as well as with survivors of sexual assault as a sexual assault nurse examiner. Prior to private practice, she practiced for many years in college health and OBGYN settings, and gained her perinatal expertise through a clinical rotation at Women and Infants Hospital.

In her private practice, Michelle sees teenagers, young adults, college students, and adults. She particularly enjoys seeing pregnant women, women struggling postpartum, fathers, and college students of all gender identities.
