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 and minimize risks of side effects from medications. Dr. Larson starts 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 he forms 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 Dr. Larson is well trained in the use of psychotropic medications, and will prescribe them when needed, he is very cautious to use them because of his goal is to maximize both wellbeing and safety. He is a firm believer in a family centered and collaborative care model that puts you at the center of all treatment decisions.
