Back when I did my psychiatry residency lifetimes ago at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, there was this senior resident 2 years ahead of me who I thought was so cool. 

She was calm, poised, and thoughtful…and would talk about spirituality in psychiatry, which wasn’t a common topic of conversation back then in the midwest in an urban hospital (this may be different now). 

🧘🏻‍♀️ It was also during my residency that I discovered meditation through a program called Inner Engineering. It was life changing for me…I’ll share more about that program another time. 

I didn’t know this at the time, but that senior resident had also done Inner Engineering several years prior! So I felt an instant kinship with her. 

Her name is Dr. Jennifer Giordano…also known as Dr. G. 

After completing residency, I moved out of Michigan and would run into Dr. G at various meditation programs and we’d chat about the state of medicine and psychiatry. 

Fast forward to the present day, and Dr. G and I now both have our own psychiatric private practices where we blend spirituality, holistic health, and conventional treatments into psychiatric care. 

👉 Dr. G recently opened her own practice specializing in helping people taper off psychiatric medications. 

She was gracious enough to share her knowledge with us in our latest YouTube video.
