About Our Services
We offer a comprehensive, coordinated team-based approach to health care as well as individual consultation and assessment.
Our focus is on determining the level of care you need and putting together the best possible treatment team for you.
We have practiced psychiatry in just about every setting, from inpatient, to emergency, to residential, to general outpatient. Throughout my varied experience in this field, one fact about healing from psychiatric issues has become clear to me:
People with any form of health conditions, including mental health conditions and other “medical” conditions, get the best outcomes from treatment plans that consider the whole person—addressing the many variables that can contribute to, or detract from, optimal health and well-being.
Therefore, we provide integrative medicine services based on the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model of healing.
Having cultivated relationships with outstanding care providers across the country, we are here to lead you in the development of a treatment team that meets your unique needs.
Thanks to telehealth and online consulting, your access to top experts is no longer limited by your geographic location. We will build your treatment team based solely on who will best facilitate your healing, with a carefully chosen care manager, who will oversee and coordinate your care, along with providing support for you so that we can help you implement any modalities of treatment that we believe will be helpful and effective to your healing.
The members of your optimal treatment team may include:
- Functional Medicine Specialist (to address underlying nutritional or hormonal issues and/or unexposed toxicities that may exacerbate your condition)
- Family Therapist
- Health Coach (to help you navigate and manage practical, day-to-day activities)
- Medical Provider
How it Works
We offer a three-step approach:
- 1. Assessment/Consultation
- 2. Personalized Integrative Plan of Care
- 3. Your healing begins
Note: You can sign up for just the individual assessment with me or join our wellness program and have us put together your whole personalized integrative plan of care.
Here’s a little more about each step:
A comprehensive assessment takes place over two full sessions in which we review your background and evaluate the bio-psycho-social factors that impact your health and mind-body wellness. Laboratory and other studies may be ordered and reviewed, along with other assessments as indicated. Additional factors that we consider are your activities of daily living, social and vocational activities, relationship with movement and exercise, your childhood history, and family history. Any history of triggering events, or changes in health and wellness status will be explored. A thorough evaluation is the cornerstone of effective functional medicine and integrative medicine and a compressive treatment plan.
2. Personalized Integrative Plan of Care
Based upon your assessment, your Care Team is developed, which may include psychotherapy, medication management, (which may include the use of psychiatric medications and/or functional mention interventions), nutritional therapy, movement/exercise, and/or health care case management. Your Care Team will developed with a goal of optimizing your health and wellness, based on where you are now and what you need now, and will consist of a combination of your individual sessions with the providers selected for you. You will also be given therapeutic opportunities (which are your individualized “homework assignments”).* You will meet together with the many members of your treatment team at regular intervals to assure that you are progressing and to guide your care.
3. Your Healing Begins
Whether you would like just an assessment, or an assessment followed by the initiation of treatment, so that you can immediately start on you plan for wellness, we are here for you! If you decide upon just utilizing the services of an assessment, we will spend a follow up session with you reviewing our recommendations, and explaining what we feel would be in your best interest in terms of modalities of treatment, levels of care to consider, and other follow up options. If you instead choose to come under our care as a patient/client, we will be delighted to initiate our Care Team and program and quickly set up your meetings with other Care Team members and initiate your weekly sessions. We hope that you will contact us today so that we can get you started on your path toward health and wellness of mind and body!
