Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Practice in San Francisco
Welcome to our San Francisco Bay Area psychiatry practice, offering psychotherapy and medication consultation, rooted in an integrative psychiatry model.
We use the term "integrative" to describe a holistic approach to psychiatric care that draws upon conventional Western and complementary therapies. During our comprehensive evaluation that explores possible biological, lifestyle, psychological, and environmental contributions to symptoms, we work with clients to develop an integrated treatment plan drawing upon our specialties in psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, herbal medicines, and mindfulness-based approaches. In our view, "integrative psychiatry" also carries with it the core values of compassion, humility, receptivity, and curiosity.
Innumerable research studies highlight the ways in which psyche (mind) and soma (body) are connected neurologically, hormonally, immunologically, and otherwise. We aim to help people develop greater awareness of the ways in which their minds and bodies relate to one another, thereby improving all aspects of their health.
We specialize in mental health and life concerns such as:
- Anxiety and anxiety-related disorders
- Work-related challenges
- Stress management
- Mood concerns
- Finding meaning
- Grief or loss
- Attentional disorders including ADD/ADHD
- Sex and sexuality
- Relationship and intimacy
- Sleep disturbance
