Integrative Psychiatry

An approach to psychiatric care that accounts for the whole-person, synthesizing evidence-based pharmaceutical options and more “unconventional” mind-body modalities. When medications are used, they are most effective when working in combination with psychotherapy and other healing and self-care practices. Instead of viewing mental health in isolation, this modality considers the spiritual, social, vocational and physiological dimensions of an individual.
