Integrative Psychiatry

1673456497It is possible to thrive.

When you’re feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and exhausted, you’re just trying to survive each day.

It feels like everyone’s counting on you – your coworkers, partner, family, and friends. The weight of everything is taking a toll, and the idea of thriving feels light years away.

You barely have the bandwidth to catch up on all your emails, let alone exercise, meditate, meal prep, do your breathwork, cold plunge, socialize, and do all the things that are supposed to help.

We get it. We’ll meet you where you are to find the best course of action for your unique needs… whether it’s using medication or finding other strategies to support your biochemistry.

Sometimes, you just need a little guidance to recalibrate.

That’s where our integrative approach comes in.

The right approach can make a big difference.

Nobody wants to take medications if they can avoid them. And you certainly don’t want to be prescribed a pill without understanding your options.

You want a psychiatrist who will listen and spend more than ten minutes with you before sending you off with a prescription.

You also want your doctor to stay up to date with the latest treatments and partner with you on a treatment plan.

While medications can be life-changing in the right circumstances, you know there’s more to mental health than taking pills.

You want to look under the hood and understand what else you can do to optimize your mental well-being.

Too often, people are told their labs are “normal” even when they’re still tired, depressed, and anxious.

Or they’re given generic recommendations for supplements… which is overwhelming when you go to the store and have to make sense of the hundreds of supplement bottles on the shelf.

You’re interested in knowing how lifestyle, exercise, meditation, mind-body practices, and mindset all play a role. You would love to work with a doctor who can help you apply these things effectively and sustainably.

Take the next step.

Our clinicians are thoughtful when it comes to prescribing the right treatments. We take our time to do a thorough psychiatric and medical history, considering your treatment history, lab results, and overall goals.

Before the first appointment, you’ll complete an extensive online intake packet that includes a health assessment, rating scales, and other lifestyle factors.

We encourage you to upload any previous lab tests and medical records into the confidential patient portal.

We’ll explore your symptoms and figure out if medication would be helpful.

If you’re already taking psychiatric medications, we’ll help you find the most appropriate dosing and regimen.

We also specialize in helping people taper off medications safely when appropriate.

“Wow, I didn’t know there were so many things we could do. I never talked to my other doctors about all of this stuff.
They just wanted to give me meds and send me on my way.”

It’s time to thrive.

To get the most out of our integrative approach, we recommend working with the psychiatrist, therapist, and nutritionist in the beginning to address your symptoms from all angles and maximize your results. If you’re already working with one of these practitioners outside of our group, we’ll collaborate with them.

If you’re on the fence, we’ll help you figure out the best course of action for your needs.
