Integrative Psychiatry Consultations
These consultations are for people suffering with stress, sleep problems, anxiety, depression, moodiness, or worsening memory. Integrative psychiatry combines the best of conventional modern medicine with the best of integrative and holisitic medicine to offer patients better mental health care, improved quality of life, and to minimize risks of side effects from medications. We start with a comprehensive history and review of prior records, followed by a medical evaluation and laboratory testing to evaluate for any physical disease process that could be contributing to psychiatric symptoms. Using this information we form a comprehensive assessment and treatment plan that is based on a foundation of lifestyle. Examples include personalized recommendations for adjustments in daily routines, dietary and supplement changes, exercise prescriptions, recommendations for specific types of counseling, mindfulness training, relationship strengthening, and more! While our Psychiatrists are well trained in the use of psychotropic medications, and will prescribe them when needed, they are very cautious to use them because the goal is to maximize both wellbeing and safety. We are firm believers in a family centered and collaborative care model that puts you at the center of all treatment decisions.
