Over the last fifteen years, I have devoted myself to learning about new, evidence-based integrative approaches in psychiatry. This clinic is the culmination of those efforts, bringing together the treatment modalities that I believe are integral to long-term healing. I invite you to learn more about the integrative approach and the possibilities it can offer.
Fortunately, I had the chance to learn about integrative and functional medicine, which focused on root causes of symptoms, thought of the body as an interconnected system, and focused on gentle, natural treatments. Although I was initially skeptical, I saw patients get better in a way that I hadn’t before; they weren't just managing their symptoms.
Becoming a doctor felt like a natural choice given my love for science and desire to develop meaningful, long-term relationships with patients. Despite training in the country’s top psychiatric hospitals, however, I didn’t see patients getting well or thriving to the extent I believed they should. Instead, I saw patients being put on more and more medications, often without significant improvement but with increasing side effects.
