Dr. Shelmith Mamo, DNP
Dr. Mamo has been passionate about mental health and how to reduce stigma about mental illness. She embraces a diverse practice for all ages and areas of psychiatry including children and older adults. Dr. Mamo believes it’s important for patients to be heard without being judged. She strives to listen and learn about each individual patient and develop a therapeutic relation. Dr. Mamo uses evidence-based approaches together with her clinical experience to safely prescribe medications to help improve mental health symptoms. She treats anxiety, depression, ADHD, Bipolar disorder, mood disorders, OCD, panic/agoraphobia disorder, avoidant behavior, PTSD and Co-occurring substance and mental health disorders. She prescribes medications after she discusses with the patient/family about their symptoms and goals in order to come up with an effective, individualized treatment plan. During the initial psychiatric evaluation, she includes a comprehensive assessment based on a patient’s symptoms, patient’s strengths, situational stressors, and treatment goals. Together with the patient she decides on a treatment plan that may include psychotherapy, medications, or both. Dr. Mamo graduated with a Bachelor of Nursing degree (BSN) from Texas Tech school of Health Sciences in Lubbock Texas, a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) specializing in Family Psychiatry from University of Texas in Arlington, Texas and a Doctorate of Nursing (DNP) from Wilmington University in New Castle, Delaware.
