Matthew Lyman, PMHNP

Nurse Practitioner

I am a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Graduate School of Nursing with a Master of Science in Nursing and completed post-Masters advanced graduate studies at Northeastern University in the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner specialty. I also have a Master of Social Work degree from Boston College. I am a board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) licensed in D.C., Maryland and Massachusetts.

In my capacity as a Nurse Practitioner, I have worked in outpatient mental health clinics, on a mobile team performing community-based interventions, and as a specialty psychiatric provider within a primary care group practice.

I have a wide range of experiences in providing pharmacological interventions to promote improved mental health, quality of life and general well-being. I take an approach that is collaborative in decision making for medication interventions, providing education, weighing risks and benefits, and considering each person’s unique goals for wellness with respect and empathy.
I am inclined to be cognizant of social and cultural factors in approaching treatment and strive toward cultural competence in its many forms.
