Experienced psychiatrist who treats children, adolescents, adults using functional medicine principles and practices in addition to traditional psychiatric interventions.

While traditional psychiatry has its place, it has become focused predominantly on identifying pills for symptomatic treatment, not cure. Problem is that pills often do not work or work only partially, they can have significant side effects, they often need to be taken forever and can have withdrawal effects if stopped abruptly. I have studied functional medicine (aka Integrative and Holistic Medicine) for many years and became a yoga and meditation instructor in addition to becoming a Perfect Health coach (focuses on Ayurvedic interventions). With these varied but interrelated skill sets, I help people discover root causes to their problems and eliminate them using supplements, herbs, lifestyle interventions like nutrition (I am becoming a certified nutritionist due to the strong relationship between diet and mental heatlh issues), exercise and stress management. You become a partner in the process of discovering your optimal health and wellness, so this is not a typical paternalistic doctor-patient relationship.
