A COMMITMENT TO TREATING THE WHOLE PERSON:
BODY, HEART, MIND AND SPIRIT
Within each of us there exists an absolute and infinite source of healing, which can be accessed and harnessed. If you believe this, then you are invited to enter a state-of-the-art, new paradigm of functional medicine within integrative psychiatry, whether for yourself or your relationships with friends and family. My unique form of integrative holistic psychiatry unifies the four worlds of the body, the heart, the mind, and the spirit creating an embodied and enlivened home for the soul. The goal of assessment and treatment is to go beyond the symptoms or dis-ease patterns, to get to the fundamental core systemic issues in a person’s life, and then to address these fundamental issues directly.
IDENTIFYING THE DEEPEST ROOT PROBLEMS UNDERLYING SYMPTOMS
From a holistic perspective, a person’s suffering from a particular condition may be hidden, possibly lost behind multiple symptoms and diseases that are causing them to suffer. We will look to explore the underlying reasons for the condition that causes suffering, exploring them in the context of multiple complementary healing systems, which you are invited to explore below. Behind every symptom there is a person with whom the medical professional needs to establish a therapeutic relationship in order to create an effective healing plan.
AN EFFECTIVE APPROACH TO PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH
Perhaps you have tried other techniques which haven’t worked. I have particular expertise with psychiatric treatment-resistant patients who have failed to improve despite multiple medications and therapies. I offer safe ways to taper off medications or reduce dosages and regain happiness and well-being.
BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS BASED ON TRUST AND CARING
I believe that the basis for effective treatment is mutual trust, respect and caring in an environment where you can feel safe and understood. More than thirty years of helping patients allow me to truly understand the varieties of lived experience and prolonged illness, of anguish and psychological suffering, of confusion and frustration.
A CUSTOMIZED, PATIENT-CENTERED TREATMENT PLAN
We will begin to explore natural and benign treatments to maximize your potential. We will attend closely to your unique biological and psychological, social and cultural circumstances.
