Glidepath Behavioral Health's patients are middle-aged and older and suffer from new onset/chronic mental illness or Dementia. We welcome patients whose chronic medical illnesses complicate the care of their related mental illness. In addition to offering intensive non-medication interventions, we prescribe evidence-based medicines. We successfully reduce and or discontinue medications during the course of treatment and involve the patient/loved ones and primary care providers in treatment plan development. Our model recognizes the impact of geriatric mental illness and dementia on loved ones and we address their needs as well.

My ideal client could be a child, adolescent or an adult that wants and needs to get psychiatric care. I am an open-minded and holistic psychiatrist who takes the whole person into account when I am treating him/her. I practice the biopsychosocial model and I also understand that not all treatment modalities work for all people. I tailor treatment goals and strategies for each individual person. I am also a big believer in combining diet, exercise, acupuncture, reiki, massage, physical therapy, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, psychoeducation, groups into the treatment plan and focusing on wellness as well.
