Sometimes, therapy isn’t enough
For some people — especially those living with acute distress, chronic conditions, depression, sleep disorders or ADHD — the support of a therapist may not be enough, and medication may be needed.
That’s where an integrative psychiatrist comes in.
To fully support your quest for well-being, our compassionate psychiatrists will get to know you before writing a prescription. Your treatment plan may combines traditional medication management with exercise, lifestyle changes and one-on-one conversations.
OUR SPECIALTIES INCLUDE
How Does Integrative Psychiatry Work?
Well Clinic’s physicians offer a comprehensive approach to psychiatry, which combines Western medicine with complementary recommendations. We believe that your mental health affects every other part of your body: and vice versa.
Your psychiatric treatment plan can include traditional psychiatric medication management and talk therapy, we well as recommendations for off-site meditation, exercise, yoga, lifestyle changes and nutritional counseling.
The integrated nature of this approach will help you leverage your existing resources to bring about change.
Are You Ready to Get off of Anti-depressants?
Getting off antidepressants is an important decision, which can greatly affect your life and relationships. It’s also not something to treat lightly, as there may be side effects.
While your anti-depressant medication may have provided relief, it probably didn’t directly address whatever emotional issue caused your depression. Before making any decisions, it’s always wise to coordinate with your integrative psychiatrist.
If you’re ready to begin, we’re here to help.
Help for ADD and ADHD
ADHD, stands for “attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.” This disorder is defined by patterns of inattention and/or hyperactivity as well as impulsive behavior.
To some degree these patterns occur in everyone. What differs in a person who has ADHD is that these patterns significantly interfere with social, academic, and extracurricular functioning.
Seeing an integrative psychiatrist can help.
Can Yoga Help with Anxiety and Stress?
Yoga and meditation are ancient and proven techniques that can help bring calmness into your life. Incorporating these practices into your daily routine can be a powerful part of your integrative psychiatry treatment plan.
In meditation, the goal is to focus on your breath and clear your mind. With yoga, the focus is on gentle movement and separating your mind from your bodily sensations. Both are incredibly useful for decreasing stressful thoughts and paving the way for therapy and psychiatry to have a maximum affect.
MEET OUR PSYCHIATRY TEAM
I absolutely love Well Clinic! From the beginning, my husband and I felt like we were in a comfortable and safe space.
Our couple’s therapy bridged gaps in our relationship and helped us understand each other that much more.
Well Clinic is an oasis, especially for busy professionals like me.
It’s a relaxing and safe space, nothing like the stuffy or drab offices you’d expect when going to a therapist.
Well Clinic’s inviting and professional design makes me feel comfortable and at ease, which probably benefits the work I am doing.
In fact, it doesn’t really feel like a therapy clinic at all, which I find awesome.
Well Clinic is an amazing place for holistic healing and medicine. The services they offer — and the professionals they employ — are unparalleled.
They are a progressive and forward thinking bunch of healers who will make you feel at home. Huge thumbs up for this awesome team!!
