Getting support for your mental health is the best thing you can do for yourself. I want all my patients to know that I'm committed to paying attention to the details and hope they find my style therapeutic, caring, and fun.

Damaris Chukwara, DNP, APRN, PMHNP is a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner licensed in the state of Texas.

Damaris's love for people inspired her to become a nurse and it is her strong belief that mental health care is the foundation for living well and thriving that inspired her to get her specialization in psychiatric care.

She is passionate about mental health specifically focusing on disease management and providing greater access to mental health care, and currently sees patients in Heading’s Dallas, Texas clinic and via telehealth.
