My Approach to Treatment


Dr. Rim Mghir has been in private practice in Virginia since 1997. She specializes in psycho- pharmacological treatment for a wide range of mental disorders. Much of her focus in treatment is on anxiety and affective disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder. She worked with combat veterans at the Veterans Administration Hospital at Perry Point, Maryland for three years prior to entering private practice. She also has conducted research studies on the impact of war trauma on adolescent refugees from Afghanistan. Dr. Mghir has a specialty in geriatric psychiatry. She treats an older population in her practice, with the particular psychiatric presentation of that age group.

In her practice, Dr. Mghir emphasizes open rapport with her patients. She places great emphasis on a thorough evaluation of the patient's medical, psychological and social background and history at the outset of treatment. This provides the framework for formulating a treatment plan, which is presented to, and discussed with, the patient. Dr. Mghir works closely with other health professionals involved in the care of her patients, and monitors closely the progress of their treatment.
