Rebecca Kostopoulos, NP is a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner dedicated to helping people who are struggling with mental health concerns find ways to live a full and balanced life.
Rebecca’s practice focuses on medication management. Typically she offers this in conjunction with supportive or emotionally focused therapy in 30 minute follow-up visits. Occasionally Rebecca may believe that additional therapy is also needed and ask that you bring a therapist into your care team to provide the best outcome.
She received her Master of Science in Nursing with a specialty in psychiatry from Columbia University and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Boston College. She is trained in psychiatric diagnosis, medication management, and psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapies.
Rebecca has extensive experience evaluating and treating adults in a variety of settings over the past 10 years. Previously, she has worked at Elmhurst Hospital’s Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program, and at Gracie Square Hospital on an inpatient unit, in addition to community health settings and skilled nursing facilities.
As a nurse practitioner, she believes that addressing mental health concerns is just as important as addressing physical concerns. She values the therapeutic relationship with a collaborative and empathic approach to treatment.
