My approach is based on integrative psychiatry, which uses medications, therapy and complementary medicine to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. I address the combined impact of sleep , lifestyle, relationships, nutrition and chronic medical conditions on well-being, and use cutting edge tools like genetic testing to guide personalized treatment with medication and supplements. I consider the patient’s cultural background in my assessments and I can provide treatment in Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. My goal is to help my patients create lasting changes and build vitality, resilience and purpose in life.

Lately, you’re just going through the motions. You drag yourself from bed each morning, exhausted from a fitful night of sleep . As you drive to work, you can feel the dread growing – heart pounding, every muscle tensing. By the time you arrive, the anxiety is so overwhelming that you cope by switching on autopilot. So you move through your day in a daze. Eventually, you make it home, collapse on the couch, and try to distract yourself until you have to repeat the same thing the next morning. Something needs to change. Maybe you’ve seen a handful of psychiatrists but you're still struggling. It feels like you’ve tried everything.

Be seen during flexible hours, within a week of your request! Have you ever heard your psychiatrist say, “I’m here to prescribe your medications; talk to your therapist about that”? My approach is just the opposite! Your story is essential to making sure you get the proper treatment, whether involving meds, therapy, a combination, or neither. I request and welcome your opinions and preferences while making your treatment plan. I make sure to answer questions about your symptoms and treatments in a judgment-free zone, and in language free of medical jargon.

I care for patients from the paradigm that mental and physical health are so strongly intertwined that one may not fully achieve either without striving for both. I treat both a vast range of psychiatric conditions and help those who wish to better understand themselves and their relationships. My areas of interest include anxiety, depression, whole body health, coping with medical illness, and addiction medicine. I will formulate a customized treatment plan, which may include psychotherapy, medications, and behavioral techniques, to best care for your condition and meet your needs.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Palo Alto is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Palo Alto Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Palo Alto has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Palo Alto, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Palo Alto Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.

If you're finding it difficult to find the right psychiatrist in Palo Alto, don't worry--you're not alone. Psychiatrists are highly specialized professionals.
