We use low-dose psychiatric medications in conjunction with an eclectic blend of psychotherapeutic modalities including psychodynamic therapy, interpersonal therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, inner child work, outdoor walking therapy, meditation, and Kundalini Yoga. We also offer convenient at-home gene testing to help illuminate which medications may work best in your treatment.
