"The meanest patient, yes, even the lowest is allowed some say in the matter of her prescription. Thereby she defines her humanity."

-David Hare, The Hours-

Meet Our Founder,
Dr. Amenaghawon Ugwuede, DNP, PMHNP-BC

As a psychiatric provider, I deeply value the diverse journeys and stories each of my patients brings into my practice. It is a genuine privilege to be entrusted with the responsibility of guiding individuals along their journey towards healing.
I'm acutely aware of the unfortunate realities many individuals face within the mental health field, which is why I am committed to offering personalized, empathetic care that centers around their well-being and autonomy.
I believe in the power of collaboration and mutual respect, working together with my patients to craft treatment plans that honor their individual needs and preferences. It's essential to me that every person I work with feels seen, heard, and empowered in their healthcare journey.

I specialize in providing culturally sensitive care to underserved communities, particularly Black individuals and children of immigrants, addressing their unique mental health challenges.

Ultimately, my goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where my patients feel empowered to make informed decisions about their health, knowing that they have a compassionate ally by their side every step of the way.
