About me

Dr. Azad is a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist with particular clinical interests in infant and early childhood mental health, perinatal mental health, trauma, transitional age youth, eating disorders, school-based mental health, and collaborative care. She enjoys working with families in a collaborative 2-generation clinic based in the Appletree Schools providing care and support for underserved families. She also is a part of the Launch program focusing on empowering and fostering independence for transitional age youth. Dr. Azad also provides clinical care for young children and families in the Georgetown outpatient clinic. Dr. Azad is not just a clinician, but an advocate and educator. She strives to help each patient recognize their full potential by performing comprehensive evaluations that includes identifying strengths and weaknesses and then formulating individualized plans that connect each individual to the pertinent tools that will allow them to live their best life possible. Her goal is to help optimize function in the simplest and most parent-driven way with the primary goal to help empower the parent and child to build resiliency and to increase the overall thriving of the family system. 

Dr. Azad completed her undergraduate degree in Neuroscience and South Asian Studies at Wellesley College and then pursued a Master of Science in Global Health at The University of Edinburgh in Scotland prior to obtaining a medical degree at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine-NY. She completed both her general psychiatry residency and child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship training at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and has most recently transitioned to faculty within the Department of Psychiatry in 2019. While not at Georgetown, Dr. Azad also oversees the medical and psychiatric services at a chain of 4 eating disorder practices across the DMV providing specialized care to adolescents and adults struggling with disordered eating.
