NICOLE LEISTIKOW MD
I am currently accepting new patients with my first openings in May 2023.
I treat women living in the Baltimore area, seeking in-person and hybrid (some virtual) visits, focused on psychotherapy with or without medication management, with priority for women around the time of pregnancy. I also specialize in treating medical professionals. In addition, I provide one-time consultations for women needing a second opinion or recommendations to take back to their managing psychiatrist. By attending to the whole picture, I can help determine if medications might be helpful, when to start medication treatment and when to hold off, how to optimize or simplify medication regimens, what other interventions can also be tried, and how to maintain and protect mental health and prevent future exacerbations.
I accept self-pay only for new patients with private insurance, who may be able to get partial reimbursement if they have out-of-network benefits. I have a limited number of slots available for perinatal women with medicaid who are able to attend regular psychotherapy. I am licensed to treat patients located in Maryland only.
New patients can set up a brief screening phone call to hear more about what I do and to find out whether my practice is a good fit by leaving a message at 443-459-1840.
If we are working together, I highly recommend that we meet in person for at least some visits. I find that it tends to help us connect with each other and makes the work more effective sooner.
