Integrative Psychiatry in the Washington, DC Area
purposefully causing change by taking action;

Improving your mental health is a process that involves the whole body.
Traditional psychiatry is surface level. Integrative psychiatry is more than medication and goes beneath the surface to reduce symptoms, not just cover them up with a pill. Integrative psychiatry is holistic and encourages looking from the inside out.

My Holistic Approach, including Therapy
(in a casual, comfortable, professional way)
What does personalized mean?
It all begins with you.
Where traditional psychiatry alone is bland, integrative and functional psychiatry is rich and colorful. It is a powerful combination of the best practices that science has to offer.
The exact formula we'll create together will depend on what makes you unique, including your genetics, history, lifestyle, and everything in between.
With an integrative approach, we do not use a one-size-fits-all prescription or treatment plan.
We’ll explore root causes. Together we can come up with short-term and long-term solutions. After reviewing all available options, together we'll select a path based on what is important to you.
+ your goals
I offer a variety mental health services to customize your treatment:
+ holistic approach to medication with thoughtful prescribing
+ ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) & other therapies
+ addressing lifestyle changes to enhance other treatments
+ utilizing evidence based supplements when appropriate
+ analyzing and building healthy plans for the long term - including meals & and nutritional needs
+ going beyond the surface to understand genetic and biological factors
+ optimizing mental health and enhancing performance with your physical fitness
I believe medication is only
part of the solution.
Self-improvement is a journey,
not a destination.
How It Works & Pricing
My fees allow me to provide an unparalleled service with dedicated attention and longer appointment times. My goal is to help you achieve, excel, and grow. We'll work together to reduce your symptoms, increase your output, and achieve your goals.
Appointments are typically virtual, but we can meet in person too.
+ I do not accept insurance
> I will provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance. Reimbursify is an app that submits the claim to your insurance on your behalf. If you're interested, during your appointment we can go over this and how it works.
> I do not have a published sliding scale but I happily will review your situation to determine if any discount can be provided.
In this 75 minute appointment we will cover a lot of ground. I'll get to know you. Together we'll come up with a plan. Before your appointment you will complete intake paperwork, questionnaires, and applicable screening tools. My goal is to come prepared with action items on day one. After this appointment you can expect to leave feeling empowered with tasks in-hand to complete prior to our follow up appointments.
Follow up Appointments
Follow up appointments are either 25 or 50 minutes. During this time we will discuss our plan, make adjustments as needed, and continue our progress to your goals. You'll come prepared with action items completed and ready to engage collaboratively. We will go over what is working, what isn't, and where we're headed next. Additional screenings, labs, or testing services may be necessary. Depending on our goals, our follow up appointments may include therapy, med management, nutritional counseling, coaching, exercise planning and more.
Sometimes testing can help us guide treatment. I utilize testing services including genetic and lab testing to help guide our treatment plans. Some testing services are covered by insurance. We will review any tests as part of your appointment. Additional services may also include consultation with other providers, letters for employers, and complex prior authorizations.
