About Dawn McCarty, PMHNP-BC

My name is Dawn McCarty and I’m a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with over 20 years of healthcare experience. I take a holistic approach to care and specialize in dual diagnosis, medication management, and psychotherapy. Areas of special interest include addiction, codependency, trauma bond, PTSD, personality disorders, anxiety, depression, postpartum issues, ADHD, dyslexia, and grief/ loss.

The first step toward healing begins with an accurate diagnosis, followed by a combination of therapy modalities, lifestyle adjustments, and proper medication management. Together we can work to harness your inner strengths, learn new coping skills, and break down barriers the that prevent you from living your best life.

I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Xavier University and my Master’s from Indiana Wesleyan University. I am trained in Trauma Informed Care (TIC), EMDR, DBT, CBT, Motivational Interviewing and am a Certified Interventionist for alcohol and chemical dependency.
