Christina Rinderle, MSN/ED, NNP-C, PMHNP-C, PMH-C

Advanced Practitioner, Aldie, VA

Christina Rinderle is a dual-licensed board-certified neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) at our Aldie clinic who provides psychiatry services in-person and via telehealth. She began working at the Perinatal Project | Columbia Associates in 2020. Tina has spent the majority of her nursing career working in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), focusing on the comprehensive care of ill and preterm newborns and supporting their families. Her interest in psychiatry has been a natural progression as many parents and family members experience mental health conditions and stress before, during, and after their loved one’s NICU stay. She also has experience working in the mental health field as a triage advice nurse for several years.

Tina believes in holistic care and has been providing support to women’s mental health through her role as an NNP for many years. She is certified in perinatal mental health through Postpartum Support International, Inc. and is passionate about her goal to increase awareness and treatment of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.

Tina’s nursing education began at George Mason University, where she graduated in 1989 with her Bachelor of Science in nursing. She worked for several years in a Level III NICU and earned a scholarship to attend Georgetown University Medical Center’s neonatal nurse practitioner certificate program. After graduating in 1994, she cared for infants and their families in times of joy as well as crisis. She obtained her master’s degree in nursing education at Walden University in 2014. Most recently, Tina returned to George Mason University, where she received her psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner post-master’s certificate in May 2020. As part of her client care role, she is certified to provide transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), which targets key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression.

Tina enjoys hiking, skiing, and crafting in her free time. She is married and has three adult children.
