Integrative Psychiatry

Integrative medicine uses a combination of modern healthcare practices to diagnose and treat a patient. Treatments may include lifestyle choices such as dietary changes, exercise habits, and meditation, functional medicine approaches, conventional medications, and psychotherapeutic approaches. This practice also focuses on the nutritional and exercise habits of the patient. Integrative medicine physicians believe lifestyle choices are the root cause of many modern chronic diseases.

Our clinic believes in assessing and treating the root causes of mental health conditions. Unlike most traditional psychiatry clinics, here you will work collaboratively and personally with an integrative psychiatrist.

Your integrative psychiatrist will take you through an expanded assessment interview and will explore together the root causes of what you are experiencing. Specialty laboratory tests may be ordered to further clarify your health challenges. We are committed to making your journey to wellness as direct and effective as possible.
