BRAIN BIOLOGY - > MEDICATIONS
Research studies have shown that psychotropic medications may help with symptoms of depression and anxiety. While medications are not always necessary, they can ease the burden of symptoms to give your recovery a head start.
PSYCHOLOGY - > THERAPY
Feelings can generate anxiety and a number of mechanisms that are maladaptive. My psychotherapy approach aims to facilitate an experience of connecting to buried emotions, because our feelings tell us who we are and what we want. I require that I see all of my patients for psychotherapy as it is an essential component of effective care.
Diet - There is increasing anecdotal evidence of certain diets conferring mental health benefits. While diet is difficult to study and evidence is scarce, we can talk about how diet could affect your mental health.
Exercise – While not curative in itself, exercise is a recommended adjunctive intervention for a variety of psychiatric disorders.
